Did Tim ever do a straight dramatic role in film or TV?
Rest easy, Mr. Conway.
God bless him and his loved ones.
His early career is noteworthy to me as much as anything he's done. He portrayed Ensign Charles Parker in the ABC show McHales Navy which ran between 1962 to 1965. . The show ran four years and it was a show I never missed. Conway was absolutely great in it! Another great performance was with him and another great comic from back then--Don Knotts. That would be the two "The Apple Dumpling Gang" movies.
He was a comedy genius, pure and simple. RIP, Mr. Conway.
Wow! what a great improv scene. Mickey Hart was one of my favorite Tim Conway characters. RIP Tim.
This makes me sad.
Tim Conway was a year older than my father and one his favorites. My father passed away last month and now Tim this month.
Sad news. He had me laughing until my sides hurt when I was a kid. His fellow cast members couldn’t even keep a straight face...which just made the whole thing that much funnier.
Rest in peace Tim Conway
So was I:
RIP, Tim Conway, and thanks for the laughs. He will be missed.
As others have said, one of the funniest humans ever to live. He was great in McHale's Navy on possibly even funnier on Carol Burnett. He was a genius at ad-lib.
This was the first non-cartoon movie my parents took me to as a kid. I became a big fan of his later from the Carol Burnett show. RIP Mr. Conway.
Sorry to hear about your dad... I hope he lived as long a life as Mr. Conway, and I trust that you laughed more at his jokes than even those of a talented comedian. We sometimes forget how many laughs we share with people who never achieve the limelight.
Thank you for the kind words @mrjinks.
I know he had roles in CSI and Major Crimes and a couple of TV movies in the '70s, but I'm not certain they were all straight dramatic roles.

I hold Mr. Conway responsible for a number of happy childhood memories.
That is actually Lyle Waggoner..not Dick Van Dyke
Sorry, it IS Dick Van Dyke. The monkey/elephant sketch outtakes were from the show's last season, Harvey Korman had
left, and Van Dyke took over for 13 episodes, including this one.
