Rowan and Martin's Laugh-in. The complete third season
|Availability:||Available at 2 Libraries 2 of 2 copies|
SummaryThe 60's gave us "in crowds," "be-ins" and "love-in," and starting in 1968, the happening place for free-form comedy was Rowan and 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. The cast album Laugh-in is out, and cash registers are ringing, so NBC can afford an impressive roster of guest stars for season 3. The Fab Four's Ringo Starr "subs" for Peter Sellers, and three-fourths of the Pre-Fab Four, the Monkees, monkey around in an insurance scheme. Pilot Sid Caesar flies around as a "bird seed" smuggler in Wings Over Tijuana.
