The Young Americans (1969)

We watch late ’60s show choir so you don’t have to. Check out the total clusterfuck that was 1969 mass media with this clip featuring the ecstatic song and dance of The Young Americans, Lorne Green, Tiny Tim, and The Committee. The Smothers Brothers managed to merge the counterculture and the mainstream with grace, humor, and edge. This special…not so much. The Committee makes an entrance at the 2:44 mark and again during the opening credits at 3:30. Viewing under the influence of LSD is not recommended.
