Good Night Dick!

Some of you may be too young to remember Rowan and Martin’s Laugh In.

This show... perhaps the offspring of Ernie Kovacs... or maybe it was the citified cousin of Hee Haw... was a psychedelic experience for those of us who never tried drugs.

It introduced us to Kate Hudson’s mom (Goldie Hawn) and the acclaimed Lily Tomlin...and many other zany comedians.

It was also the training ground for the creator of another groundbreaking comedy series... Lorne Michaels of SNL fame.

Co-host of the program, Dick Martin, has exited the planet. According to the New York Times, Martin died Saturday of respiratory failure in Santa Monica, California.

Will the funny guy be missed?

You bet your sweet bippy he will!
