It was Laugh In for children, just a terrifically entertaining show, chock full of talent. I wish they’d remake it for my kids’ generation.
I just checked out (again) the Best of Electric Company from the library. This week the kids and I will sit down with some of my favorite skits.
Like this one (notice the guy once known as “Easy Reader”).
Thanks for playing, YOU GUYS!
