Dick Martin, RIP. It would be pretty simplistic to say that “Laugh In”‘s finest moments bridged the gap between Ernie Kovacs and the original SNL “Weekend Update”, but there you go, I’m saying just that looking back on Rowan & Martin thru slightly rose-colored lenses. Some of their bits have aged well, others less so, but at a particular point in time R&M gave a strong hint of comedy’s possibilities.
