Legendary comic Tim Conway dead at 85
Conway won multiple Emmy Awards, most recently in 2008 for his role as a guest star in the comedy show "30 Rock."
Tim Conway, the Emmy Award-winning actor best known for his role on "The Carol Burnett Show," has died, his publicist said Tuesday. He was 85.
Conway died Tuesday morning in Los Angeles after a long illness, according to Howard Bragman, who heads LaBrea Media.
"The Carol Burnett Show" aired on CBS from 1967-1978. The ensemble cast included Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence and Lyle Waggoner. Conway joined the cast as a regular in 1975 after being a frequent guest.
"I'm heartbroken. He was one in a million, not only as a brilliant comedian but as a loving human being. I cherish the times we had together both on the screen and off. He'll be in my heart forever," Carol Burnett said in a statement.
Besides his four Emmys with Burnett, Conway got two more for guest appearances on "Coach" and "30 Rock." Conway also had a modest but steady movie career, appearing in such films as "The Apple Dumpling Gang."
