Summary The 60's gave us "in crowds," "be-ins" and "love-in," and starting in 1968, the happening place for free-form comedy was Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In, broadcast from beautiful downtown Burbank. Straight man Dan Rowan and wisecracking co-host Dick Martin led a gaggle of goofballs through a rapid-fire assault of one-liners, skits, bits and non sequiturs that left viewers in hysterics and disbelief. Anything and anyone in the public eye was a target. Political correctness? Forget it! The groundbreaking, Emmy Award-winning show anchored the Monday 8 p.m. time slot on NBC until March 12, 1973. In this first season: Flip Wilson is Adam (now residing outside of the Garden of Eden); Tim Conway and Cher as John Smith and Pocahontas; a silent salute to presidential candidate George Wallace; a Mod, Mod World look at the Olympics - these are just a few of the zaniest things crammed into Season 1. The biggest news, however, is the first national television appearance of Tiny Tim, the ukelele-toting, falsetto-singing throwback to a bygone era of American pop music. He makes the rest of the cast seem normal - and Dan and Dick squirm. A perfect fit. He'll be back.
