    Truly sad news. He was quite likely the funniest man of his day, (and any other). There are no comedians that even come close to his style and talent.

    Loved how he showed you could be funny without using a ton of profanity, sexual inuendo, etc.

    They used plenty of sexual innuendo, it was just written so well you didn't know. The best part of Conway was that he would purposely push the limits to get everyone to break.

    Apple Dumpling Gang was the first time I remember him from my childhood. :(

    One of my earliest memories of comedy was watching the Carol Burnett Show with my mom, specifically a regular sketch where Carol played a somewhat dim-witted secretary to Conway's boss, who shuffled his feet around the office everywhere. At least, that's what I remember of it. :)

    On the Carol Burnett Show he was so funny that they couldn't control themselves.

    I loved him on The Carol Burnett Show when I was a little girl. I adored him and Doris Day and Peter Mayhew as Chewbacca. I’m watching my childhood slip away, one beloved public figure at a time. I am no spring chicken myself, so I count myself fortunate these delightful entertainers were among us as long as they were.
