Assault & Flattery

1970s

The 1970s brought some notable changes to Assault & Flattery. The show proved so popular that the one-night-only show turned into a two-night affair in 1977, extending to three nights in 1979.

As in the past, the shows took place during Law Week. The format of the show began to shift in the 1970s, marking the transformation of Assault & Flattery from a collection of skits to a show united by a larger theme. In 1976, Assault & Flattery bore the additional title My Fair Lawyer. The students built Act 1 around the My Fair Lawyer theme, while Act 2 comprised of the more familiar series of sketches, songs, and guest appearances.
