Comedian Dick Martin dies at 86

I will always have fond memories of Dick Martin and his "Laugh-In" co-host Dan Rowan.

Laugh-In was a great show that introduced us all to some great new talents like Goldie Hawn. Here are some classic lines from the show:

Sock it to me!

Look THAT up in your Funk and Wagnall's

You bet your sweet bippy.

One ringy-dingy. Two ringy-dingies.

Very interesting, not very funny, but very interesting.

This show was prerecorded earlier, because it didn't make much sense to prerecorded it later.

Rowan: Say good night, Dick.
Martin: Good night, Dick!


  1. I loved that show, would watch it with my parents and I remember them wondering if it was a bit too risque for kids :) If they could only see into the future....

    Dick Martin always seemed like the nicest guy. He will be fondly remembered.

  2. It was a truly original show! Even though I was a little kid when it was on and it almost seemed to come from a drug induced haze, I loved everything about Laugh-In. Dick Martin was so funny!

  3. I watched Laugh In during the most carefree time of my life and will always treasure the memories.
    p.s. Dan and Dick were a great duo. I've enjoyed a book of letters between Dan Rowan and my favorite author, John D. MacDonald.
    The book is titled - "A Friendship: The Letters of Dan Rowan and John D. MacDonald 1967-1974"

  4. I wish we still had sitcoms that were funny instead of vulgar.

    I loved laugh in....and I'm sad to see us lose a great comedian.
