Harvey Korman And Tim Conway Star In Hilarious Hot Dog Vendor Sketch

Laughs can be found when preparing and buying food, especially when two comedic legends are in the sketch.

The Carol Burnett Show remains a beloved program decades after its run on television ended. It sported an insanely talented, legendary cast and excellent writing. Tim Conway and Harvey Korman were two members of the historic cast. 

One classic skit from the show features Tim as an elderly gentleman running a hot dog stand and Harvey as one of his customers. The hilarious skit begins with a construction worker asking for directions to the post office. Unfortunately, Tim’s character doesn’t answer the man’s inquiry in a timely manner and things get hysterically worse from there.

Moments later, Harvey, playing a rushed businessman seeking lunch, sits at the counter. After Harvey grabs his seat, it’s clear that both men are going to have a tough time keeping it together. Noticeable smirks come across both of their faces.

Harvey’s character then politely places his order. “I’d like a hot dog and a chocolate shake, please,” he says.

But too bad for Tim’s elderly character, his memory isn’t what it used to be. This doesn’t go over well with the businessman on the other side of the counter. His level of annoyance increases rapidly. He’s soon barking out his order.

Tim’s character goes to greater and greater lengths to fulfill the order. All his efforts are in vain. His memory has failed him miserably.

At about the 6-minute mark of the clip, as Tim is hilariously handling several hot dogs, Harvey tries to but fails to mask his laughter at Tim’s antics.

Eventually, Tim’s character does fulfill the hot dog and chocolate milkshake order...kind of.

How Tim is able to keep it together during the sketch is beyond me. Harvey, on the other hand, wasn’t as successful in doing so. 

Job 8:21 “The time will come when your mouth will be full of laughing, and cries of joy will come from your lips.”
