  • Judy Carne sticks in our memories as the “Sock it to me!” character on Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In (1968-73). When she uttered the magic words, she’d abruptly be doused with water, fall through a trap door or suffer some other inglorious fate.

    Judy Carne Net Worth: Judy Carne was an English actress who had a net worth of $8 million dollars. Judy Carne was born Joyce Botterill in Northampton, Northamptonshire, England, in 1939. She acted in 1961's "Danger Man" series in Britain before moving to the United States. She scored a part on TV series "Fair Exchange" as an English girl who moves to America. Her other credits include appearances in "The Baileys of Balboa", "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.", "Gidget", "Love on a Rooftop", "I Dream of Jeannie", "The Big Valley", "Bonanza", "All the Right Noises", "12 O'Clock High", and "The Americanization of Emily". Her most famous role, however, was on "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" from 1968 until 1973. She became famous for the phrase "Sock it to me!", which always ended with Carne experiencing some sort of calamity whenever she said it. She wrote and published her autobiography, "Laughing on the Outside, Crying on the Inside: The Bittersweet Saga of the Sock-It-To-Me Girl", in 1985. It touched on her marriage, her drug use, and her sexuality. Carne married actor in 1963. They divorced in 1965 and she wed producer Robert Bergmann five years later. That marriage ended one year later. Carne ended her acting career in the early '90s. Unfortunately Judy Carne died on September 3, 2015.

  • Judy Carne, who has died aged 76, was a bouncy, auburn-haired British actress who won overnight fame in the 1960s as the Sock It To Me girl on the hit television show Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In; she returned, albeit briefly, to the limelight in 1985 when she published an autobiography in which she told of her volatile relationship with her first husband Burt Reynolds, confessed to a string of affairs with members of both sexes and chronicled battles with drug addiction.

    However, after two seasons, Carne became tired of the gag — people would randomly toss water on her as she walked down the street — and limited her appearances on the show during its third season. She did not appear on the show after the third season. Judy Carne’s personal life was in stark contrast to the laugh-a-minute character she portrayed on Laugh-In. She was briefly married to Burt Reynolds, a marriage which Carne claimed was abusive in her autobiography. She also suffered from heroin addiction, and would be arrested several times on drug charges, making it harder for her to get roles.
