"That's Hedley!"


Harvey Korman passed away. What a wonderful comedian he was!



"Now go do that voodoo that you do so we-ell!"

Won't forget you or your work any time soon, Mr. Korman.

Edited to add: I see that Dick Martin also passed away a few days ago, another great comic legend from "Laugh In," and he and Dan Rowan were up there with Abbott and Costello, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, and the Smothers Brothers any day of the week. (Please, no more comedians! We need all the laughter we can get these days.)

I loved it when he played the old Yenta in a skit or 2 on Carol Burnett.

It's not the greatest capture, but the first appearance of Harvey as Mother Marcus can be found HERE.

As its_just_me mentioned, it was Alexander Courage who died, and he wrote the theme song, and I did see that the TOS director Joseph Pevney died, too (I should drop a line to David Gerrold as that was the director that did "The Trouble With Tribbles").

Geek card intact. :)
