Dan Rowan and Dick Martin’s sketch-comedy series Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, which originally ran from 1968 to 1973 on NBC, is getting a star-studded 50th-anniversary tribute on Netflix. The streaming network announced today that the special, titled Still Laugh-In: The Stars Celebrate, will tape at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood this Friday, March 8, and feature a long list of big comedy names. A premiere date for the special has not yet been announced.

The tribute will include original Laugh-In cast member Lily Tomlin, as well as director-producer George Schlatter, who will be joined by a bunch of performers paying tribute to the classic series. While the special will also feature some “surprise guests,” the announced lineup is a big one: Billy Crystal, Neil Patrick Harris, Tiffany Haddish, Maria Bamford, Cheri Oteri, Jay Leno, Bobby Moynihan, Rita Wilson, Michael Douglas, Taye Diggs, Rita Moreno, Jo Anne Worley, Margaret Cho, Brad Garrett, Nikki Glaser, Lisa Ann Walter, Rob Riggle, Jeff Ross, Natasha Leggero, J.B. Smoove, Tony Hale, and Jon Lovitz.

Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In also marked one of the first television writing credits for a man you might have heard of who went on to create his own NBC sketch-comedy show: Lorne Michaels.
