He had been battling a longtime illness prior to his death, called Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, said Howard Bragman, Conway's representative.

"The Carol Burnett Show" aired on CBS from 1967-1978.

Besides his four Emmys with Burnett, Conway got two more for guest appearances on "Coach" and "30 Rock".

"I think Conway's goal in life was to destroy Harvey", Burnett told the Television Academy Foundation.

Burnett was joined in honoring the great comedian today, as other comics praised Conway as a comic's comic.

At a 2013 event promoting his memoir, What's So Funny? "The truth is I don't think there's anything else I could be doing so the answer would have to be, nothing ..."

He was a staple of TV variety programs and comedy shows for roughly half a century. He said they failed because he was not comfortable being the star.

Korman died in 2008. He also starred in "The Tim Conway Show", and had recurring roles on "Married With Children" and "Yes, Dear", and voiced the character Barnacle Boy on "SpongeBob SquarePants".

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.
