Make Me Laugh
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Make Me Laugh was an American game show in which contestants watched three stand-up comedians performing their acts, one at a time, earning one dollar for every second that they could make it through without laughing. Each comedian got sixty seconds to try to break the contestant up.
In 1979 Frank Zappa was special guest in the show. The assorted comedians couldn't make him laugh. Videoclip at YouTube
