Emmy-winning actor Tim Conway, who brought an endearing, free-wheeling goofiness to skits on "The Carol Burnett Show" that cracked up his cast mates as well as the audience, died on Tuesday at the age of 85, his publicist said.
Conway died Tuesday morning after a long illness in Los Angeles, according to Howard Bragman, who heads LaBrea Media.
According to People, before his death, "he suffered complications from Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) and had no signs of dementia or Alzheimer's". He frequently guest-starred on the most popular shows of the day, including Married with Children and Mad About You.
Besides the four Emmys he won with Burnett (three as a performer, one as a writer), he won Emmys for guest appearances in 1996 for "Coach" and in 2008 for "30 Rock". He also voiced a character on "SpongeBob Square Pants".Читайте также: Meghan celebrates first Mother's Day with Archie on US date
Tributes came from across the comedy world, including from Conan O'Brien, who said as a kid "no one made me laugh harder than Tim Conway". Pandemonium breaks out, as Match Game's resident lothario Richard Dawson dips Burnett and plants a kiss on her. Rayburn mimics Dawson, except he grabs Conway instead.
Conway was born on December 15, 1933, just outside of Cleveland, Ohio, in nearby Willoughby, Illinois.
Actors Harvey Korman (L) and Tim Conway pose together as they arrive for the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences 15th annual Hall of Fame ceremony November 6, 2002 in Beverly Hills. He graduated from Bowling Green State University with a double major in speech and radio. He got his career start on local TV in Cleveland in the 1950s, where his duties included comedy spots on a late-night movie show.
After Marie took him under her wing, Conway snagged a part on the weekly variety series The Steve Allen Show.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
