Emmy-Winning Actor Harvey Korman Dead at 81

Another great actor has passed away. Harvey Korman has died at age 81.

LOS ANGELES — Harvey Korman, the tall, versatile comedian who won four Emmys for his outrageously funny contributions to “The Carol Burnett Show” and was seen to hilarious effect on the big screen in “Blazing Saddles,” died Thursday. He was 81.

Korman died at UCLA Medical Center after suffering complications from the rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm four months ago, his family said. He had undergone several major operations.

“He was a brilliant comedian and a brilliant father,” daughter Kate Korman said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press. “He had a very good sense of humor in real life. “

    You are very welcome.
    The old (and very talented) actors and actresses are dying off in record number these days and no one with any talent is replacing them.
    No wonder Hollywood can’t relate to us anymore.
