Tim Conway: The Elephant Story


This is an unedited version of The Elephant Story from The Carol Burnett Show.  The original air date was November 5, 1977.  Tim Conway refuses to let the scene continue until he can finish a story about a circus elephant.  Not sure what is funnier, Conway’s jokes or the inability of the cast to keep a straight face…


Thank you SoulProprietor

  1. i remember tim, and this show, very well. he was the original king of improv, and rambling, and the audience, and fellow cast members, loved him for it.

  2. I so loved that show. Especially when they cracked each other up. He and Harvey Korman were classic. I’ll never forget the Gone with the Wind sketch.

  3. Such memories – I’d watch the Carol Burnett show with my dad, and these ad lib moments from Tim Conway (or Harvey Korman) would just make him laugh so hard, he’d snort.

  5. I never tire of watching The Carol Burnett show! It always cracked me up when the cast members couldn’t control themselves any longer and laughed during their performance. There is no better way to start the day than with a laugh like the one you provided this morning!

  8. One of the best cast ever in TV. Tim was amazing at getting the other members to lose it.

    We used this video in one of our classes this fall to help better understand the writing of Alfred North Whitehead. Improvisation is the world we live in. The best laid plans of mice and men fall to the wayside each moment.
