Conway won several Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe for his work over the years.

Burnett will dedicate a previously scheduled performance of her one-woman show, An Evening of Laughter and Reflection Where the Audience Asks Questions, to Conway's memory tonight in North Carolina. "He is at peace now but I will miss him every second of every day until we meet again in heaven".

"I'm heartbroken. He was one in a million, not only as a brilliant comedian but as a loving human being", Burnett tsaid. (Carefully costumed, Conway performed the bits on his knees.) Among them were "Dorf on Golf" and "Dorf Goes Fishing".
