R.I.P. Harvey Korman

I think it was last year’s TV Land Awards where the cast of the Carol Burnett Show were honored. Harvey thanked his doctor for giving him pills that allowed him to stand erect. Despite the obvious entendre, I thought he looked rather frail and sickly and wondered how much longer we would have his comedic genius.

Sadly, Mr. Korman departed the planet today at the UCLA Medical Center after suffering complications from the rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm.

The world has suffered a great loss.

Read more about this great comedian at The Associated Press and additional details (with a funny comedy sketch between Korman and Tim Conway) at MSNBC.
