I was born in the early 70s, I remember watching re-runs of Laugh-In with my mom. Variety shows were very popular back then. A lot of actors/actresses would get their start on these types of shows as well. This was considered wholesome family entertainment 1 hour a week. There are times I wish television was still like this. Here is a better description of the show in case you haven't heard of it.
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-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 nonsequiturs that left viewers in hysterics and disbelief. Anything and anyone in the public eye was a target. Political correctness? Forget it! The off-the-wall, groundbreaking, Emmy Award–winning show would go on to anchor their Monday night time slot on NBC until 1973, transforming both pop culture and the medium of television. “Good Night, Dick!”
