One of the funniest men alive has died today; he was 81. He had complications from the rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm four months ago.

I remember him best from the Carol Burnett show and from there Mama’s Family. He and Tim Conway were a hoot. I loved them. But he had done so much more than just that show. So many funny films. I know I will be spending the weekend honoring his memory by watch such great films like these:

Korman in Star Wars Holiday SpecialBlazing Saddles
History of the World Part I
Dracula: Dead and Loving It
The Pink Panther films

If only I could dig up a copy of the Star Wars Holiday Special to watch him as the many silly characters he plays in the Lucas’ TV blunder. (Although having seen this as a child when it first aired I rather liked it.)

Mr. Korman will be missed.
