In the skit, Carol’s character is in a doctor’s waiting room and strikes up a conversation with the man sitting next to her. He tells her what medicine the doctor prescribed him for his headaches, and Carol goes on to talk about how the medicine that he was prescribed has some serious side effects that she read about.
The other patient, Tim Conway, in the waiting room comes over to hear about these side effects. And this is when the comedy really starts!
Carol says that dizziness can be a side effect, and then Tim Conway is in the background and starts to act dizzy. He is making the most hilarious faces that keep the audience laughing.
As Carol continues listing out the different side effects, like muscle spasms, deep depression, and fits of laughter, Tim Conway keeps reacting in a way where he has the certain side effect that she is explaining.
“How can they keep a straight face with Conway acting like a nut? Comedic genius,” comments one person on YouTube after watching the sketch.
“All three were very funny but Tim Conway was always the highlight of the show,” writes another person on YouTube. “I remember watching the Carol Burnett show with my family when I was a very young child, loved it.”
“These three together were a winning combination every sketch they performed,” adds another person online after enjoying this comedy skit. “The Carol Burnett Show was amazing, I’m so glad I got to watch it back in those days.”
