Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In was on TV from 1968-1973. It was my favorite show then. In many ways, it was a predecessor to Saturday Night Live. It had a cast with guest stars. Guest stars ranged from Hugh Hefner to Richard Nixon and John Wayne. There were lots of skits and one-liners. There were recurring jokes and lines such as “Here Comes the Judge”, “Very Interesting” and “Sock It To Me”. Laugh0In didn’t have musical guests unless you count Tiny Tim. Like all comedys kit shows, it was hit and miss. If you watched it today, you wouldn’t get a lot of the topical jokes unless you lived through the era.
One of my favorite recurring bits was at the end of the show when Arte Johnson as a German soldier wished good night to Lucy who was on another network.
