Los Angeles, CA – While best known for his roles on McHale’s Navy and his 10-year run on The Carol Burnett Show (to say nothing of his voice acting as the Barnacle Boy in SpongeBob SquarePants), Tim Conway also headlined several shows of his own throughout the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, three of which—The Tim Conway Comedy Hour, The Tim Conway Show, and Ace Crawford: Private Eye—will become available for streaming on demand for the very first time beginning Saturday, Aug. 1 on ShoutFactoryTV.com, and several other streaming platforms, including the Shout! Factory TV apps (Amazon Fire TV, Android, Apple TV, Roku), Amazon Channels, and on such Shout! Factory TV branded channels as Pluto, Roku Premium Subscriptions, and Tubi.
The Tim Conway Comedy Hour (CBS, 1970) was a variety show much like The Carol Burnett Show (which Conway, of course, was an integral part of). Carol Burnett and Harvey Korman made guest appearances on the show, as did Mickey Rooney, Carl Reiner, Tony Randall, Shelley Winters, Lana Turner, Danny Thomas, Steve Allen, Imogene Coca, Joan Crawford, Walter Brennan, Barbara Feldon, Peter Graves, Janet Leigh, and Dick Martin.
The Tim Conway Show (CBS, 1980-1981) was also a variety show, with lots of dancing and live musical numbers. In addition to comedic royalty like Burnett and Korman, guests included Vicki Lawrence, Don Knotts, Bernadette Peters, Burt Reynolds, and Jonathan Winters.
In 1983, Conway starred in Ace Crawford, Private Eye (CBS, 1983), a scripted series in which he played a bumbling private detective who always solved his case. While the show only ran for five episodes, it captured Conway’s lovable comedic brilliance, and each episode ended humorously with him leaving his favorite wharf-side bar at the end of the night and audibly falling in the water.
In addition to streaming all three series across multiple digital and broadcast channels, Shout! Factory has also secured rights to develop a Tim Conway tribute special in collaboration with the Conway estate. Details will be announced soon.
