As a young person, one of the funniest television shows I remember was Rowan and Martin’s Laugh In. The show was fast paced and filled with jokes and sketches and memorable characters. All the big stars of the day would make cameo appearances with the regular cast members, many who went on to become major stars on their own; like Lily Tomlin, Goldy Hawn, Ruth Buzzi, Arte Johnson and more.

This year is the 5oth anniversary of the program, and I was delighted to see that Netflix is putting together a star-studded 50th Anniversary special, that will tape in Hollywood on March 8th. The tribute will include Lily Tomlin, and an amazing group of performers that will try to recapture the zaniness of the original show. The line-up of guests include:

  • Billy Crystal
  • Neil Patrick Harris
  • Tiffany Haddish
  • Maria Bamford
  • Cheri Oteri
  • Jay Leno
  • Bobby Moynihan
  • Rita Wilson
  • Michael Douglas
  • Taye Diggs
  • Rita Moreno
  • Jo Anne Worley
  • Margaret Cho
  • Brad Garrett
  • Nikki Glaser
  • Lisa Ann Walter
  • Rob Riggle
  • Jeff Ross
  • Natasha Leggero
  • J.B. Smoove
  • Tony Hale
  • Jon Lovitz.

Netflix has not yet announced a premiere date, but I can’t wait to see it!
