THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW:
THE BEST OF HARVEY KORMAN

Street Date: August 1, 2017
DVD SRP: $12.95


During his 10-season run on The Carol Burnett Show, Harvey Korman was television's top second banana, with multiple Emmy® Awards and a Golden Globe to prove it.  He was fearless: he sang, he danced, he ad-libbed, he pranced, and he made TV audiences roar with laughter.  No sketch, drama or musical number was safe once Harvey entered the scene - either from his prodigious talents, or the probable cast crack-up to come!

Perfect for fans old or new, THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: THE BEST OF HARVEY KORMAN is a brand-new single DVD featuring three (out of four) rare episodes, which haven't seen the light of day in more than 40 years.  Showcasing some of Korman's most memorable on-screen moments, home audiences will howl with delight as he slips into a Hugh Hefner-style fantasy to indulge his ego, goes way over the top as a conga player and singer supporting Carol's Carmen Miranda character, and outdoes himself donning a sequined dress and heels for an Andrews Sisters takeoff with Carol and Vicki Lawrence.


THE BEST OF HARVEY KORMAN is a time capsule history of comedic genius, and home audiences will enjoy:

    Classic long-running sketches "V.I.P.," "Carol and Sis," and "The Old Folks"
    Carol cracking up at Harvey falling on his rear in a Carmen Miranda takeoff, and Tim Conway's "Oldest Man" safecracker cracking up Harvey during a jewelry heist
    Harvey as the President in a casual, spontaneous "Fireside Chat" with the First Family
    A very vocal Harvey Korman Fan Club who track him to his dressing room
    And Harvey in full drag, lip-syncing to the Andrews Sisters all to benefit the PTA!
    Plus guest stars Sid Caesar, Diahann Carroll, Tim Conway, Ella Fitzgerald, Bernadette Peters, and Nancy Wilson

Star Vista picked these best of Harvey Kormans they're not necessarily the best of his work as far as I'm concerned.My father who was classically trained at Goodman Theatre/studied with Uta Hagen/HB studios in NY was a versatile artists without peer.My fathers best work wasn't always with Conway in fact his best work wasn't with Tim Conway.My fathers best work for me was in Blazzing Saddles and High Anxiety and History of the world and any sketch without Conway.Went with the Wind is my fav..I prefer my dads work with Carl Reiner Ken Berry,Betty White,Jonathon Winters,Alan Alda,John Byner,Sammy Davis Jr..My fathers best work wasn't him breaking character it was him showing the full spectrum of the human condition in all his work over his 60 years that made him the icon he was.Thats why he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2002.
