Rowan And Martin Make It Big O ttired the public's fancy in a manner rarely seen ifl television, tt also captured Emmies, deified Tiny Tim, immortalized beautiful downtown Burbank, loosed a spate of imitative TV and radio commercials and induced everyone from presidential candidates to tati drivers to say "Sock it to me" and "Here comes the Judge." 1 must confess I played the Doubting Thomas when t lis tened to Dan Rowan and Dick Martin glow about the program's chances before it went on the air.

Open 2 Nights a Week- Monday and Friday But they were fight, and flow they are enjoying the results of their success, they are hot taking it big; 1? years as a comedy team have made them realists. They can be excused if they enjoy a few "I-told'you-so's." "'Laugh-in' is simply applying to television some of the things that Marshall McLuhan has been writing about/' said Dan Rowan, referring to the author of "The Medium is the Message" and other works on modern media. "I don't think anyone has really dealt with the impact of the visual medium before. Now you are beginning to see commercials In which the visual is uppermost. But many of the commericals are still using the same tried-and-true method of printing the message on the screen and having an announcer repeat it vocally." "Right!" said Dick Martin. These two seldom disagree, except in their bickering comedy routines and politics—Dan Id a McCarthy maft; Dick was for Kennedy. "it was the same in the TV variety show," continued Rowan, the straight man of the team. "How long could personable hosts go on introducing personable guests? The variety format was carried intact from radio, which in turn had merely adapted the vaudeville technique. "What we're doing is not entirely new," commented Dick, the blank-faced zany. "Olsen and Johnson did it for years with their 'Hellzapoppin' It's simply throwing gags at tin audience with as much speed and shock as possible. You take a series of jokes, throw away the question and just leave the punchlines, and you call ft 'cocktail party.* "Other variety shows always closed with music. We clow with jokes—the joke wall They're not all great, but they hold the audience's attention, right to the end of the show. "Some people in television don't realize how brief the attention span of the audience is. While watching other variety shows, you can turn away and just listen for a while. Not 'Laugh-in.' You've got to watch it every minute or you'll miss something." Open 9 a,m. to 9 p.m. Daily Noon to 6 p.m. Sunday Plenty at Free Parking; 409 St. Louis Avenue. East Alton (across from E.
