On February 5, 1967, the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour premiered on CBS. I remember watching it, as well as Laugh In, Carol Burnett, Jackie Gleason, Jonathan Winters, Jack Benny, and Red Skelton.
I was only 9 years old at the time, and sometimes I just didn’t get the humor.
I think I liked Carol Burnett the best.
It was such an unhappy time, the late 60’s, yet such shows proliferated. One thing that surprised me as I researched this was how long the sketches were that I found.
What was your favorite comedy show? Know any good jokes?
