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. It snared the flamboyance of the era. Its anarchic energy, and its 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 of the most popular shows of all time.
