The Carol Burnett Show: 'The Lunch Break'

In a comedy skit from "The Carol Burnett Show," two master comedians—Harvey Korman and Tim Conway—show how it's done in the old days, with deadpan humour and mock seriousness.  The variety show originally ran for 11 seasons on CBS from September 11, 1967, to March 29, 1978, for 278 episodes and originated from CBS Television City's Studio 33 in Los Angeles, California. It starred Carol Burnett, Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence, Lyle Waggoner and Tim Conway. I have fond memories of viewing it with my family on Saturday evenings in the early 1970s.
