NOSTALGIA DAY

Join us for a step back in time on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 AT 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  Do you remember Laugh-In?  It was an American sketch comedy TV program that ran from 1968 to 1973, on the NBC. It was hosted by comedians Dan Rowan and Dick Martin. The popular show was characterized by a rapid-fire series of gags and sketches. The co-hosts continued the exasperated straight man (Rowan) and "dumb" guy (Martin) act, which they had established as nightclub comics.   Come spend an hour or two with us to watch and laugh at the show (DVD) and enjoy some snacks.
