Harvey Korman

Harvey Korman (born Harvey Herschel Kormen) was born on February 15, 1927 in Chicago, IL.

Korman started acting professionally at the well-known Goodman Theatre in Chicago.  From there he went on to small Broadway roles, TV commercials and cartoon voice-overs (not the business then as it is now), and a big break on the Danny Kaye Show in 1963.

It was The Carol Burnett Show and his teaming with funnyman Tim Conway that set him apart, winning 3 Emmys and 1 Golden Globe award.  In the years that followed he had his own show and made appearances on Mama's Family (spin-off from a sketch on the CB Show) and several Mel Brooks' films.

Korman toured with Tim Conway until 2007.

Korman had been married twice, Donna Ehlert (1960 - 1977 div), with two children (Maria Ellen Korman - 7/31/65; Christopher Peter Korman - 5/24/67) then Deborah Fritz (1982 - to his death) with two children.  Korman has three grandchildren produced by Chris and Maria, who had twins.

Korman died on May 28, 2008 due to complications from a rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm 4 months earlier.
