‘The Carol Burnett Show’ was one of the funniest shows in TV history. What made it even more enjoyable was the incredible physical comedy by the actors. Tim Conway and Carol Burnett showcased their comedic skills in a sketch where they play a couple who are a disaster in the kitchen.
Tim starts off in the kitchen and shakes an empty coffee pot in annoyance. Carol walks in and tells him to be quiet, multiple times. She tells him that she finally got the baby to go to sleep.
He realizes that’s why there’s no coffee, and he walks to the cabinet and says he has to make some. While Tim is looking around, Carol passes out and slams her head on the counter. Tim sees her and tells her to go back to bed since she’s tired, and he will handle breakfast.
Carol gets up and says, “Ok. Remember, shhh!” She walks out, and he gets water from the cooler, which bubbles loudly. He runs to it and tells it to ‘Shhhhh!’ He walks to the cabinet, and it won’t open, so he pulls a little too hard and rips the whole cabinet down. Everything falls out of it, and it’s loud, causing Tim to jump back in fear.
Carol walks in swiftly and tells him to be quiet. Tim apologizes and says she should rest as she looks at him in disgust. He asks her to get the frying pan for him because he can’t find it.
It’s right on the stove in front of him, and she grabs it and hits him in the stomach with the pan. She asks if she can sleep, and he says, “Yeah,” so she slowly walks back to the bedroom. Tim tries to make eggs and smashes them all over the floor, messing everything up.
Carol comes in and tells him she will make breakfast because he cannot. He hands her the pan that is boiling hot, and she screams. Then, the whole house starts to rumble from an earthquake, and cabinets fall everywhere. The two run around frantically to stop everything from making noise, and everything stops. The baby starts crying, and Tim says he will be back at lunchtime. It is a great sketch that shows their physical comedy skills.
