    Default Bring back the Gong Show with DLR!

    RIP Gene Gene the Dancing Machine!
    Loved this show! DLR could bring it back. He is the only guy who could replace Chuck.

    ...and now the host of the GONG SHOW, David LEEEEEEE ROTH!





    This would be right up his alley.

    I don't think DLR could be a Game Show host because nobody gets his jokes but him.
    Right here I say....

    One of the dumbest shows ever but it was awesome. Unknown comic gave way to unknown fans for every lousy sports team in the country. Didn't Barris say he was a CIA agent once lol? 1970's ruled. Old man Dave would work!
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    Funny thing......In the George Clooney movie Chuck Barris was indeed portrayed as a CIA agent.

    But I read his book which the movie was based upon and there's not a single word about it in there. I've long been confused about this. Guess Ill have to do a Google search after seeing this now it's peaked my interest again.

    Also kinda cool to note that he wrote the song " Palisades Park " . I first heard that tune on The Beach Boys 1976 album " 16 Big Ones" . Love that tune. It's one of my all-time favorites.

    Na, the host really doesn't get much time. It's all about the acts and the judges. Dave needs time to ramble.
