Actor Tim Conway Dies

Iconic comedian actor Tim Conway died Tuesday after a long illness, according to published reports.

Conway, 83, was known best for his co-starring role on CBS’ The Carol Burnett Show, which ran from 1967 to 1978. Conway was part of an ensemble cast that included Burnett, Vicki Lawrence and Harvey Korman that was known for their comedic skits, and Conway’s unscripted humor often caused his co-stars to laugh during the show’s tapings.

Conway, who won four Emmy Awards for his role as an actor and writer on The Carol Burnett Show and six statuettes overall, also served as the voice of Barnacle Boy on Nickelodeon’s animated series SpongeBob Squarepants.
