Laugh-in's co-host dies

Dick Martin, one of the co-hosts of the famous Laugh In TV show has died this past weekend. He was 86 years old. I can't believe that Laugh In was broadcast back in the late 1960's. It was the start of many careers such as Goldie Hawn. I was an avid fan of the show when I was a kid.

Martin had been living with one lung since he was a teenager. He developed a respiratory illness in his later years. He passed away as a result on May 24th, 2008.

Dick's partner on the Laugh In show was Dan Rowan, Dan passed away in 1987. After Laugh In, Dick started a career in directing and was one of the busiest directors in Hollywood. Mostly limited to TV sitcoms his talent as a director was in high demand.
