Tim Conway is best known for his work on “The Carol Burnett Show,” a legendary 11-year stint that garnered him six Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe and four generations of fans. Conway played the funny guy opposite Harvey Korman's straight man, often cracking up Korman midway through scenes. The spontaneous break in character became a hallmark to watch for in every episode.
Conway's often-improvised humor, razor-sharp timing and unforgettable characters have made him one of the funniest and most authentic performers to grace the stage and studio in the last forty years. In 1989, Conway received his much deserved star on Hollywood's "Walk of Fame." In 2002, he and Korman were inducted into the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences' Hall of Fame. In 2005, the duo joined the rest of the Carol Burnett cast in receiving TV Land's Legend Award and, in 2008, Conway received his 7th Emmy Award for his Guest Appearance on “30 Rock.”
Conway’s most successful films include Disney’s “The Apple Dumpling Gang” and “The Apple Dumpling Gang Rides Again,” as well as “The Private Eyes” and “The Prize Fighter,” both written by Conway and featuring his “The Apple Dumpling Gang” co-star and longtime friend, Don Knotts. Conway’s first book, What’s So Funny? My Hilarious Life, was released thru Simon & Schuster, Inc./Howard Books in October 2013 and hit the New York Times Best Seller list for five weeks.
Conway resides in Encino, California, with his wife of thirty years. He has seven children and two grandchildren.
