R.I.P. Actress Judy Carne

Judy Carne, star of Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, dies aged 76

British television actress Judy Carne – best known as the ‘Sock It To Me’ girl on hit 1960s show Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In – has died aged 76.

She found overnight fame on the sketch comedy series, and spent two years being doused with water every time she said the phrase “Sock it to me!”.

There’s no way to explain to anyone who didn’t live through it what a phenomenon NBC-TV’s Laugh-In was.

Judy Carne was the “It Girl” of her time.

Rest in peace. You socked it to all of us, baby.
