I mentioned an old Carol Burnett show in a different thread, which of course got me onto YouTube watching a few. I giggled and laughed till I had tears running down my face.....here's a couple of the best.

Tim Conway's infamous outtake elephant skit.....the backstory is that he waited until the show was on the air to spring this ad-libbed skit on his castmates.....they had no idea what was coming and totally lost it several times. But Vicki Lawrence, as Mama, gets the last word in at the end. Hilarious!

My other favorite outtake clip from the old Carol Burnett show is one where Vicki Lawrence, as Mama, delivers a series of ad-libbed one-line insults to Eunice, played by Carol. Poor Carol just can't keep a straight face.....LOL!

Carol Burnett and Tim Conway were both outstanding. Now, we have Bill Maher.

My favorite Tim Conway was an episode on his show where he was the fashion police on Rodeo Drive and he was writing tickets for fashion violations. The funniest part was people were accepting the tickets.

there have always been political satirists. perhaps you shouldn't do the partisan whine on every thread.

just sit back and laugh occasionally.

thanks.

I absolutely loved watching 'Mama' when I was a kid. It was on only when I stayed home sick, thought.

I think the best Carol Burnett Show skit was their "Went with the wind". My grandparents had a video of it and a video of Carol Burnett outtakes. It was pretty hilarious. Like the time she had to work with a horse.
