Harvey Korman: 1927-2008

Harvey Korman: 1927-2008Submit Comment
Comedian Harvey Korman, a multiple-Emmy award winner best known for his work on "The Carol Burnett Show" and in comedies such as "Blazing Saddles" and "The Pink Panther Strikes Again," died Thursday at the age of 81. According to a family statement issued by UCLA Medical Center, Korman reportedly suffered complications related to the rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm he experienced four months ago.

Korman's television career spans back to the early '60s, including small parts on such classic series as "The Red Skelton Show" and "The Untouchables." It was not until he began to appear in skits on "The Danny Kaye Show" that he became known for his dry delivery and ease with playing the second banana. Korman joined that show's cast in 1964 and remained with it until its cancellation in 1967, the same year he joined the skit comedy series that made him a household name, "The Carol Burnett Show."

On "Carol Burnett" the lanky Korman's claim to fame was playing the perfect straight man to the outrageous slapstick comedy of the other actors in the cast, but mainly Burnett and fellow cast member Tim Conway. Korman spent ten seasons on "Carol Burnett" before leaving to helm his own series, "The Harvey Korman Show", which was quickly canceled. But the comedy actor soon parlayed his familiarity into a number of recognizable roles on series such as "The Love Boat", "Roseanne" and "Mama's Family." He also lent his voice to The Great Gazoo on "The Flintstones" in 1966, before finding fame on "Carol Burnett." But it was his turn as Hedley Lamarr, a clumsy version a moustache-twirling villain in Mel Brooks' Western satire "Blazing Saddles," that film buffs may recall best.

He also appeared in two other Brooks comedies, "History of the World: Part I" and "High Anxiety," in addition to playing Professor Auguste Balls in "Trail of the Pink Panther" and "Curse of the Pink Panther." More recently Korman partnered with Conway for a live show, "Tim Conway and Harvey Korman: Together Again," which toured the country.

He is survived his daughters Katherine and Laura, his wife Deborah Fritz, and two children from his previous marriage to Donna Ehlert, Maria and Christopher.
