LAUGH-IN (THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON)
DEADLINE - JANUARY 16
Laugh-In: The Compete Second Season - BUY THIS ON DVD!
The 60s gave us in-crowds, be-ins and love-ins, and starting in 1968, the happening place for free-form comedy was ROWAN & MARTIN S LAUGH-IN, broadcast from beautiful downtown Burbank. Straight man Dan Rowan and wisecracking co-host Dick Martin led a gaggle of goofballs through a rapid-fire assault of one-liners, skits, bits and non sequiturs that left viewers in hysterics and disbelief. Anything and anyone in the public eye was a target. Political correctness? Forget it! The groundbreaking, Emmy Award winning show anchored the Monday 8 p.m. time slot on NBC until March 12, 1973.
Wait a minute! That s Richard Nixon asking the rhetorical question, Sock it to me? No boxing glove response this time, yet his appearance in Season 2 likely helped him win the presidency in November 1968. Pigmeat Markham, reclaiming his Here Comes the Judge routine, dispenses justice with a large rubber gavel to the noggin for emphasis. Marshall McLuhan, what are you doin ?
A trendsetter in TV comedy, this wacky series provided a conteporary, unstructured and fast-paced show that was exactly what an agitated America wanted in the '60s and '70s.
