Additional Information: 

Laugh-In was a popular American sketch comedy television show created by Dan Rowen and Dick Martin.  The show, which consisted of 140 episodes, ran from 1968-1973.  The title was a play on words reflecting the “love-ins” and “sit-ins” common in the 1960s hippie culture and civil rights movements.  Skits from the show featured regular cast members and special guest stars and became the launching platform for stars such as Goldie Hawn, Lilly Tomlin and Arte Johnson.  Laugh-In became the #1 television show in America within two months of its debut.

Dick Martin (1922-2008) was an American comedian and director, best known as co-creator of the Laugh-In series.  A graduate of Michigan State University, he formed a comedy team with Dan Rowan in 1952 and played in nightclubs throughout the U.S. and overseas.  The pair also appeared frequently on Colgate’s Comedy Hour.  Later in his career, he directed The Bob Newhart Show and the 1980s sitcom Newhart.
