There's nothing in the world that Tim Conway would rather do than entertain - and in his first-ever memoir, What's So Funny?, that's exactly what he does. From his pranks in small Ohio classrooms to his performances on national television and movies, Tim has been cracking people up for more than seventy years. Long regarded as one of the funniest comedians around, Tim also boasts an inspiring rags-to-riches story.
What's So Funny? captures Tim's journey from life as an only child raised by loving but outrageous parents in small-town Ohio during the Great Depression, to his tour of duty in the Army - which would become training for his later role in McHale's Navy - to his ascent as a national star and household name. By tracing his early path, this audiobook reveals the origins of many of Tim's unforgettable characters - from Mr. Tudball and the Oldest Man to Mickey Hart to everyone's favorite, Dorf.
What's So Funny? shares the hilarious accounts of the glory days of The Carol Burnett Show and his famous partnerships with entertainment greats like Harvey Korman, Don Knotts, Dick Van Dyke, Betty White, Vicki Lawrence, Bob Newhart, and of course, Carol Burnett. As a bonus, listeners will enjoy never-before-shared stories of hilarious behind-the-scenes antics on McHale's Navy and The Carol Burnett Show.

Tim, that is what's so funny!!!
Wow! I grew up watching Tim Conway and his gang. Listening to his stories about how he came to Hollywood and mastered the world of comedy was a great ride. Thanks for sharing, Tim! Looking forward to "Son of..."

Where does What's So Funny? rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
A fantastic in between book for some of the heavy history stuff I've been reading...
What was one of the most memorable moments of What's So Funny??
Too many to mention
What about the narrators’s performance did you like?
I loved that Tim, himself narrated the book...I don't think it would have been anything had someone else done it...
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me laugh out loud...
Any additional comments?
I was listening while donating platelets at the Red Cross so I had needles in both arms and my ear buds in...you are not allowed to move your arms while donating so laughing while being relaxed and pumping with one hand was quite the trick plus it made others laugh at me because they had no idea why I was laughing. I guess you had to be there...
