Tim Conway, star of the ‘Carol Burnett Show,’ dies at 85

Tim Conway appears on NBC News'

The actor and comedian best known for his role on The Carol Burnett Show has died.

The cause of Conway's death was not publicized, but he reportedly suffered complications from Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus without signs of dementia or Alzheimer's. To me, though, Conway was never more chaotic, never more emblematic of the anything-goes nature of the '70s TV he so easily ruled, than when he and a gang of intruders from The Carol Burnett Show crashed the already out of control daytime game show Match Game. The ensemble cast included Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence and Lyle Waggoner.

Conway started on the show as a guest star in its first season in 1967 but did not officially become a regular until 1975.

She said Conway would stick with a sketch's script through dress rehearsal but once it was time to tape the performance for a broadcast, he began freelancing.

He was born Thomas Conway in 1933 in the Cleveland suburb of Willoughby.

The Suns released a statement saying that they were, "aware of the report and in the process of gathering more information". Considered a potential No. 1 overall pick while playing at Kansas, Jackson found trouble during his lone season in college.

Besides the four Emmys he won with Burnett (three as a performer, one as a writer), he won Emmys for guest appearances in 1996 for "Coach" and in 2008 for "30 Rock". He graduated from Bowling Green State University with a double major in speech and radio.

He was a staple of TV variety programs and comedy shows for roughly half a century.

He lent his voice to the animated character Barnacle Boy on SpongeBob SquarePants in addition to voiceover roles on The New Scooby-Doo Movies, The Simpsons and The Proud Family.

Following the Allen show, Conway gained attention as the incompetent Ensign Charles Parker on the Ernest Borgnine sitcom "McHale's Navy" from 1962-66.

In addition to his wife and daughter Jackie, Conway is survived by children Tim Jr., Patrick, Jamie, Kelly, Corey and Seann, as well as two grandchildren, Courtney and Sophia.
