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