Many know that the iconic rock ‘n roll star Elvis Presley married Priscilla Presley in 1967 and they had one daughter together, Lisa Marie Presley. They ultimately divorced in 1973, just a few years before Elvis died at his beautiful home of Graceland, which now serves as a place for visitors to learn more about his life and career. Recently, Priscilla has been keeping in touch with her fans and answering some of their burning questions on social media.

She revealed that they used to watch Laugh-In and said that it was so funny and that she remembers all of the different guests. Priscilla added that Laugh-In was something very new in the 1960s and showcased some things that people would never say on television prior. Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In was a variety show hosted by comedians Dan Rowan and Dick Martin from 1968 until 1973 after the success of a one-time special in 1967.
