TV Fact #342 – September 30th, 2015:

The American sketch comedy television program “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In” (1968-1973), often simply referred to as “Laugh-In”, apparently could also be called a psychic hotline. Let me explain.

A number of reports from comedian Dan Rowan’s “News of the Future” segments actually came to fruition years later. Notable among them was Ronald Reagan’s presidency. Reagan was the governor of California during the original airing of the show. Rowan also predicted the fall of the Berlin Wall.

I mean comedians always tend to base their humor in real world events…but predicting them? That’s a new one for me.
