    Judy Carne, a sprightly British actress and comedian who rocketed to pop culture fame as the “sock it to me” girl on “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In,” a landmark of television zaniness, before her career was derailed by drug arrests and a near-fatal automobile accident, died on Thursday in Northampton, England. She was 76.

    The probable cause was pneumonia, said a friend, Jon Barrett, who said Ms. Carne had been in the hospital for several days and that the official death certificate was not yet available.

    After starting her career in England and building a résumé of appearances onstage, on television and in movies, Ms. Carne moved to the United States, where her first television role was as an exchange student in the sitcom “Fair Exchange.” She also became the first wife of a later-to-be movie star, Burt Reynolds.
