Four-time Emmy winner Harvey Herschel Korman, best known for his over-the-top comedy sketches on The Carol Burnett Show, died of heart failure Friday. He was 81.

From the classic Mel Brooks film “History of the World Part 1”, this scene entitled: “The French Revolution”. Count de Monet (Harvey Korman) and his ‘assistant’ Bearnaise (Andréas Voutsinas) on their way to see the King (played by Brooks).


Carol Burnett Show ‘- ‘No Frills Airline’.  Tim Conway is put through the ringer by Carol because he’s in the No-Frills section of the airplane while Harvey gets special treatment one seat ahead in First Class. Korman and Conway’s interactions are priceless.
