The Best of Laugh-In
Before “Saturday Night Live,” “The Daily Show” or “The Colbert Report,” there was “Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-in,” one of the most revolutionary television shows of all time. From 1968 until 1973, “Laugh-in” frequently was seen by 50 million viewers, capturing the zeitgeist of the era with its anarchic energy and pop aesthetic. Combining the blackout comedy of the vaudeville tradition with a 1960s-style “happening,” psychedelic costumes, graphics, graffiti, outrageous characters and a new political awareness, “Laugh-in” became one of the most popular shows in history.
