Freedom: Martin EDITOR'S NOWMMck tin, writing fdf both halves of the cMfc&fy team of "Rowan aftd Martin, • '.drop* his buffoon's mask to discuss seriously the impact of htifltof in a mass rafe- dlum. The team, successful in clubs and as television guest stars for years, have shot to the peak of success during the past season as stars of the hit NBC '«Lattgh>to» with ftew, furiously paced format. does America need mote tree, dom In itfl WMniBdyfi C;; Let's put this question in con- ^.,.^.:«-'t>-,'cr i '-.....'*,• *\i ;•*-, •. -j'Cs 7 - ' .. ' let's face it, that's where it's all As Dan and l see It, the acceleration of "changeto our rtstftttt tions, that Is both 'political and sodal, is so fast that it takes a bfWrtl Mtoke to paint a pietttte orwhat to happening now. The broad stroke is .comedy because it's the most devastat* ing stroke you can use. Maybe devastatlflg isn't the proper wofd, but in this sense we think it applies. we can illustrate what is happening out there in "the real world'* in a flash on television, make it burlesque, fast and ex. plosive. You see it for what it id. That's the style of otir times and finally television is catching tip. In the past, it seems to both of us, TV didn't lead, it followed. The pace was set by cqmmer* cial interests and the material was written and illustrated ac* cordingly. Now we see a change Where the pace of the material is passing the commercials— and, ! of course, I am talking about our show* I sound as though we're taking the credits for this but please don't misunderstand. The pace really was set a long time ago r UBdergmuid, by comedians like Lentte Bruce, Jonathan Winters, Buddy ttackett and ourselves, We were all out there m the clubs popping Mary Poppins out of her tree while motion pictures were breaking down barriers in their own field, Then came the Smothers Brothers. Thanks to their guts in relating their material direct' Jy to what youth was thinking, fconiedy started breaking, otit on television at a pace and In areas that were theretofore . consid* ered taboo. I think we came into the medium and took it all that much further,: . And there's Jonathan Winters. If Winters were allowed to fly he could give Us, all a tremen- dous run fot oar lives, The oaly thing that is keeping him down is the old-fasnionsd fottwfit of his show. Three years ago even Winters would have been cut to pieces by the cefleote. I can see where he's picking up tremendous freedom as a consequence of the changing tunes. But at the root of the .matter lies the fact that ctmedy is a buffer for social changes. If y< can see some humor in'it, th the change becomes more paiat* able. We can deal with subjects in our show like race, religion, funerals, politics and mother, hood—any fast evolving Institution—and cut them to the bone. How do we get away with it? Because the public is hip, because the medium Is hip, the material is hip and Its fast and that is exactly what is happen ing: , .
