Harvey Korman Dies

Emmy-winning actor Harvey Korman has died. He was 81.

The tall comedian, who won four Emmys for his work on "The Carol Burnett Show," died Thursday from complications from an abdominal aortic aneurysm that occurred four months ago.

Korman appeared in an endless list of movies and TV shows. Aside from his work with Burnett, he is probably most well known for the Mel Brooks comedies "High Anxiety," "The History of the World Part I," "Dracula: Dead and Loving It," and most notably, 1974's "Blazing Saddles" (see the classic scene below).

"A world without Harvey Korman -- it's a more serious world," Brooks told the AP on Thursday. "It was very dangerous for me to work with him because if our eyes met we'd crash to floor in comic ecstasy. It was comedy heaven to make Harvey Korman laugh."

He is survived by his wife and four children. -- Rachel Cericola
