Family-friendly comedian Tim Conway has been entertaining audiences for over 50 years.

Emmy Award-Winning Comic Roots Back to Ohio

As a fellow Ohioan, it’s no shock to spark interest in Tim Conway—an Emmy award-winning actor, comedian and screenwriter who grew up in Willoughby, Ohio.  Upon his graduation from Bowling Green, Conway served in the army. When he returned, the comic landed a job as a writer for a TV station in Cleveland—about an hour away from North Canton, my hometown. Conway then began to appear on movies and television shows throughout the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. The Steve Allen Show, various CBS sitcoms, Dear God and The Apple Dumpling Gang are only small bits of success that Conway has clutched. The talented comedian had his own show during the 70s, in addition to starring on the Carol Burnett Show.  He also appeared on film next to Sandra Bullock in a 1997 flick called Speed 2: Cruise Control.  More recently, Conway has made television appearances on 30 Rock and CSI. He is known for his clean, family-friendly humor—which he has presented to audiences for over 50 years.

He will be performing at Turning Stone Resort & Casino - Show Room @ 5218 Patrick Road, Verona, New York on Sunday, August 7th at 7 p.m.
