Those qualities probably contributed to his wide popularity on "The Carol Burnett Show", which he joined in 1975 after years as a frequent guest.

In one popular skit, Conway's portrayal of an inept dentist who accidentally injects himself with painkiller resulted in Korman, who was playing the patient, laughing so hard that he wet his trousers, Burnett said. He also won guest actor Emmys for a 1996 appearance on "Coach" and another in 2008 for "30 Rock".

He enjoyed success in a series of "Dorf" comedy films and appeared in such movies as The Apple Dumpling Gang, Gus and The Shaggy D.A. "I'm heartbroken", she said in a statement. "He's an icon in this business". He graduated from Bowling Green State University with a double major in speech and radio. "He's an icon that's never going to be duplicated".

He was spotted by Rose Marie of "The Dick Van Dyke Show", who got him an audition for "The Steve Allen Show".

Conway got his start in television back in the early '60s, earning a regular role on McHale's Navyas Ensign Charles Parker.

Although Conway made his mark on the entertainment industry beginning in 1962, with his Emmy-nominated performance in McHale's Navy, he continued giving critically acclaimed performances through the current decade. Soon after that series came to an end, he earned the title role in the short-lived western comedy series Rango and went on to star in his own comedy series titledThe Tim Comway Show before again nabbing the eponymous lead inAce Crawford, Private Eye. He later married Charlene Fusco.

The actor is survived by his wife, children, and two grandchildren.
