The Best of Laugh-InHigh Definition
[TV-PG]
Rowan And Martin's Laugh-In was an NBC comedy-variety program which changed television as it became an important training ground for a generation of young writers and comic talent. From 1968 until 1973, Laugh-In frequently was seen by 50 million viewers. Its anarchic energy and pop aesthetic combined the black-out comedy of the vaudeville tradition with a 1960s-style "happening," psychedelic costumes, graphics, graffiti, outrageous characters, and a new political awareness became one of the most popular shows of all time.
