The Best of Laugh-In
Before SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, or 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 black-out comedy of the vaudeville tradition with a 1960s-style “happening,” psychedelic costumes, graphics, graffiti, outrageous popular shows of all time; THE BEST OF LAUGH-IN is a delightful tribute to the comedy-variety program, which not only transformed television but became an important training ground for an entire generation of young writers and comic talent.
