VIDEO: Tim Conway’s Story During A Sketch Was So Funny Nobody Could Stay In Character!


One thing I always loved about sketch shows, especially live ones, is when the people on screen bust up laughing.

Red Rock Tribune | Even the ones that are what they call live to tape where they tape at like four in the afternoon for a broadcast later in the evening.

Heck, the other day I was watching an old Johnny Carson clip where they went off script and it seemed like they were all laughing for five minutes straight. I love stuff like that, it shows how genuine the people are and how funny the stuff they are doing really is.

I mean, if you can get a pro like Tim Conway to put Carol Burnett in a position where she can’t continue due to laughter….how hard do you think it will be to get them you to laugh?

They have to try as hard as they can to control themselves because after all, it’s live television.

Do you remember this skit from The Carol Burnett Show?

In this episode, Tim Conway destroys his castmates during a “Mama’s Family” sketch on the “Carol Burnett Show” by refusing to let the scene continue until he can finish a story about a circus elephant.

It’s all his castmates can do NOT to burst out in laughter, what a riot!
