|THE COMPLETE FlFTH SEASON OF FUNNlES...OF ROWAN & MARTlN’S LAUGH-lN.
The ’60s gave us "in-crowds," "be-ins" and "Iove-ins," and starting in 1968, the happening place for free-form comedy was ROWAN & MARTlN’S LAUGH-lN, broadcast from beautifuI downtown Burbank. Straight man Dan Rowan and wisecracking co-host Dick Martin Ied a gaggle of goofbalIs through a rapid-fire assauIt of one-liners, skits, bits and non sequiturs that Ieft viewers in hysterics and disbeIief. Anything and anyone in the pubIic eye was a target. PoIiticaI correctness? Forget it! The groundbreaking, Emmy Award–winning show anchored the Monday 8 p.m. time slot on NBC until March 12, 1973.
