Conway hams it up in rare performances not seen in more than 40 years. America’s most beloved comedian, the legendary Tim Conway is featured here in a hilarious clip from the 1960s.
In this digitally-remastered and crystal-clear video, Conway plays one of his lesser known, but nonetheless funny characters “Dag Hereford”. A self-professed expert on absolutely everything, Dag is really nothing more than a simple-minded buffoon.
This time, Dag Hereford is a professional stuntman. When Bing Crosby drops in for Conway’s antics by setting the sketch up, you know it’s going to be good.
For my fellow Tim Conway fans and all you nostalgia buffs, Fandango tells us how the character of Dag Herford came to be:
“Once the army was through with him (and vice versa), Conway secured a job answering mail for a Cleveland radio deejay; his letters were so amusing that he was given a position as a writer in the promotional department, then went on to direct a TV program called Ernie’s Place. Whenever Ernie was short a guest, Conway showed up as “Dag Hereford.”
