The Carol Burnett Show

Picked up a 'best of' DVD today.

Some of the funniest TV moments ever were on this show.

I'd say any 'funniest of all time' list is incomplete if this program isn't on it.

I agree, Tim Conway & Harvey Korman were the best. I could just look at Tim's expressions and laugh. Carol was just plain crazy. I recently watched a bunch of clips and out takes on youtube of them. Great family shows with good clean humor.

Tim Conway was way way beyond funny! He used to ad-lib all the time in the show and it would crack the cast up constantly.

One of the best known examples of Conway's ad libbing...

A few other good shows that I liked were The Wacky World of Jonathan Winters, The Flip Wilson show, The Captain & Tennille show & Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour just to name a few.

I don't know it a real toss up between this and the Smothers Brothers

I got to meet Tim Conway....even at his age, he's still trying to be funny even while
meeting a fan....great guy.

I found it at Best Buy, but it was the only copy there. It's part of a larger set, so as it turned out it only had three episodes (still some good stuff though).

The larger collection can be bought online at a cople of locations (primarily through Time Life Books I think).

He's always come across as a great person, and easily one of the funniest guys ever.
