‘Still Laugh-In’ Trailer: Lily Tomlin Leads Netflix Tribute to Iconic Sketch Show

“Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In” aired at a time when the entire country was changing. For five years between 1968 and 1973, the sketch show brought a subversive kind of comedy to the NBC primetime lineup.

Now, half a century later, with the help of some former members of the show’s greater ensemble, Netflix is bringing a fresh look at the show’s legacy. “Still Laugh-In: The Stars Celebrate” looks to pay tribute to the show while indulging in some of the show’s lasting iconography.

The hour-long special will dive into the history of the series, from its notorious drop-ins to its greater cultural relevance. As a way to try to capture some of that late ’60s/early ’70s spirit, the special brings together figures from the intervening decades of comedy and puts them right into the same paneled wall that revealed guest performers like Ruth Buzzi and Richard Dawson back in the day.
