Carol Burnett And Harvey Korman Trade Barbs As Elderly Couple In Hilarious Skit

Two comedic legends, Carol Burnett and Harvey Korman, traded barbs and quick-witted insults as an elderly couple in a hilarious skit from The Carol Burnett Show.

Comedy is subjective, and because of that, it isn’t easy to do well. What one person believes to be funny likely won’t be the exact same thing that tickles someone else’s funny bone. So, whenever someone can sustain a long and successful career in the comedy world, you know they are supremely talented.

Carol Burnett and Harvey Korman fit that description perfectly. They are two very incredibly talented people. Those two, who were co-stars on the iconic The Carol Burnett Show, still keep laughing with their hysterical performances in zany, off-the-wall skits decades after the show ended its run. 

In another uproarious clip of a sketch from The Carol Burnett Show, Harvey and Carol star as a bickering old couple. Their insults to one another make it clear that they have been married for decades and are more than comfortable with one another. They know they aren’t likely to hurt one another’s feelings easily. 

Minutes into the sketch, Carol and Harvey get a visitor. Harvey doesn’t exactly roll out the red carpet for his guest. Instead, he lets the visitor know exactly how he feels and thinks about him. On the other hand, Carol doesn’t seem to mind the older man, who looks like he would be at home at a Grateful Dead concert. 

Carol and Harvey’s exaggerated antics and ease in delivering their genuinely hilarious insults make this clip absolutely hysterical. This clip shows Harvey and Carol—two legendary comedians—at the top of their game.

Somehow, neither Harvey nor Carol ever cracks a smile throughout the five-and-a-half-minute sketch. For a show in which the actors commonly broke character, this seems like a skit that would have been easy to do, especially when it was always Harvey doing so, particularly when he was put in a sketch with Tim Conway. 

Proverbs 17:22 “A glad heart makes a healthy body, but a crushed spirit makes the bones dry.”
