I was busy getting drunk in a bar when I read that Harvey Korman died. At first, I thought it was Harvey Keitel and I wanted to slap a bitch for no reason. Actually, that’s a good idea. Tomorrow, I’m just going to walk up to some stranger, slap them and say, “This is for Harvey Korman!”
Anyway, Harvey died today at the age of 81. Harv passed away at UCLA Medical Center after suffering complications from the rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm four months ago.
One of his daughters told CNN, “It was a miracle in itself that he survived the incident at all. Everyone in the hospital referred to him as ‘miracle man’ because of his strong will and ability to bounce right back after several major operations. Tragically, after such a hard-fought battle, he passed away.”
In case you don’t know, Harv is best known for “The Carol Burnett Show, ” ” and “Blazing Saddles”The Flinstones in Viva Rock Vegas.” Ok, he’s not best known for the last one, but I love that piece of trash movie.
Seriously, all the good have been going lately! If Charlotte Rae is next, I swear I’ll jump out the window.
Harvey Korman forever! May he rest in peace.
There’s too many awesome Korman clips to post, but here’s one of him with Tim Conway:
