    Laugh-In's "Sock it to me Girl," Judy Carne, dead at 76

    Telegraph:

    Judy Carne, actress - obituary
    Actress who married Burt Reynolds and became the popular fall girl on Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In

    ---
    A fairly successful television actress when she joined the cast of Laugh-in in 1968, as the Sock It To Me girl Judy Carne became the most popular person on the show for her zany, daffy, mini-skirted comic persona, continually getting doused with a bucket of water, or subjected to some other humiliation, every time she uttered the words “Sock it to me!”
    ---
    After she left Laugh-In she became a heroin addict and her career went into a tailspin.
    ---
    In later life, however, Carne did find an element of peace in the village of Pitsford, Northamptonshire, where she lived a quiet life with two dogs and was much liked by her neighbours.
