Actor Tim Conway's unassuming frame and easygoing Midwestern demeanor served as the perfect baffle for his formidable comedic talents. As a comic actor, he displayed a knack for playing easily confused and clumsy characters, like the naïve Ensign Parker on "McHale's Navy" (ABC, 1962-1966). But Conway's true gifts were in physical comedy and improvisation, which were put to excellent use on "The Carol Burnett Show" (CBS, 1967-1978). His peerless timing and pantomime skills easily reduced audiences - and often his castmates - into helpless laughter with little or no dialogue. Conway's work with Burnett was richly rewarded with four Emmy Awards - three for performance and one for writing. But after "The Carol Burnett Show," Conway struggled in trying to branch out on his own, though he did find some success in several films with Don Knotts and playing the hapless, height-challenged Dorf in a string of popular direct-to-video comedies. Nonetheless, Conway remained a legendary comic performer who attracted new generations of fans throughout the years.
