    She said, “are you sure that little asshole’s through?”
    What fun. Pity that reality show trash dominates now, people could use a real laugh these days.

    I believe what Mama says is “Do you figure that little a**hole’s through?”

    Tim conway just got a kick out of MAKING THEM LAUGH…’spoiling’ the take and they’d have to start over, but by that time, everyone was TOO out of breath from the hilarity. No matter how much I see these, The best is the expressions on Carol’s face, when she has to PUT HER HEAD down to try to hold it together, esp. after talking about the ‘monkey dancing the merangue’…OMG classic comedy.

    I agree. P.C .kills the funny.

    I don’t know how many times I’ve watched this or how many friends I have shown this to, but I just can’t help to laugh so hard that it brings me to tears. I mean just look at Carol trying not to laugh.

    I LOVE IT! I saw Carol at our theatre this past week, she performed twice and I was there both times, and she talked about this skit at both shows…they had no idea Tim was going to do that as it was never rehearsed!

    Improv. The best. That is WHY the show worked.

    This is not the time for the batman thing. Glad, as a young person, that you can actually watch the CB show.

  20. rdangelo — 29th May 2012 @ 1:33 pm

    Holy breaking character, Batman!

    If laughter is truly the best medicine, then we all need to watch more Carol Burnett show clips. Class act & absolutely priceless. Those were the days my friend…..

    Oops! That wasn’t Harvey, it was Dick Van Dike

  23. ethelmurmur — 29th May 2012 @ 2:00 pm

    Harvey looks like he’s gonna pee his pants he’s laughing so hard LOL!

  24. wattever333 — 29th May 2012 @ 2:31 pm

  25. alanna2002 — 29th May 2012 @ 3:22 pm

    @itsmegp46 Thanx! I didn’t know her name, well obviously! And I’ve since watched more of the blooper reels from the show and she is a genius!
