On “The Carol Burnett Show,” Tim Conway makes his co-stars break character for 5 minutes straight…

Conway’s co-stars can’t keep it together when he improvises a story about a circus elephant. Carol Burnett buries her head in her hands and the other cast members, Vicki Lawrence and Dick Van Dyke.

Conway was playing the character Mickey Hart as the family attempted to play the game ‘Password.’ Conway’s character Mickey just felt compelled to tell the story of an elephant he heard about in the circus.

The first part of the clip involves Conway riffing on the story, telling them how the elephant and a trainer became lovers. He continues to say they were even buried together after they died. The actors are shaking and hiding their faces while trying to compose themselves.
