A Sad Day For Comedy

No sooner that the public hears that comic Dick Martin died, today comes word that actor/comic Harvey Korman has passed at the age of 81. I could sit here and list his credits, but America knows them by now, especially if you grew up in the Seventies like I did. Whether it was during "Blazing Saddles" as evil Hedley LaMarr or on the wonderful "Carol Burnett Show" where he cracked jokes or cracked up over Tim Conway's jokes, Korman was a one of a kind that could pull off a line with a laugh or become the perfect straight man.

He will be missed.
