Tim Conway and Harvey Korman - They both taught us that's its okay to laugh. Like a fart in church, their humor was so easy to try not to laugh out, but failing miserably. They both brought joy to me as a kid, and I love them as if they were a part of me. Hedley Lamar, Mr. Tugball, these guys were genuine gentlemen and had just as much love for comedy as any of us. Two rooks on my chess board of comedians.
