Storyline

An updated version of the classic variety 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.

Nancy's Dream Stick
8 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

I wish I could get a copy of this! Believe it or not, I appeared on this show with some friends when I was in college. We auditioned on a Saturday, and they just loved our act, so they put us on live, the next day. It was so much fun. We were just doing it to see if we could get on, and then watch what went on behind the scenes. Don Bleu was a riot. A big flirt. And in the end we got Gang Gonged! Our act.. hard to explain.. but we called ourselves Nancy's Dream Stick. I was the go-go dancer, and my friends Mike and Ralph played voo-doo guitar and lip-synced.

If anyone, has a copy of this last run of the Gong-show, that was under Chuck Barris Productions, before he sold it off, let me know!
