Storyline

An updated version of the classic vareity show in which contestants with varying degrees of talent perform for a panel of celebrity guests. Those who impress the panel stand a chance of winning cash or prizes, and perhaps even a shot at stardom. Those who fail to impress, however, get nothing but the sound of the dreaded gong.

Love that Gong Show!
21 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why was Gong Show great? Because they gave up and coming acts a chance to be seen. They paid good and were very professional, I know because I'm half of the comedy team "Oscar and Bernie" dot com. Bernie was always Gonged for saying some fowl thing, he was gang gonged by "Salt N Pepa" and I did Roy Orbison and didn't get gonged, though, as Roy, I lost by 1 point to an Elvis. Story of Roy's life, always 1 point behind Elvis! Jay Thomas, who was a judge, at the end of the broadcast, while we were all jumping around, looked at me and said ' "You look familiar." I said, "Yes, I was the guy with the bird puppet you gonged. You didn't recognize me without the mustache!" Long Live the Gong Show, may it rise again!
