also of interest: The Unknown Comic takes on Chuckie Baby, with a quick shot of Steve Martin as a judge. I didn't know Steve Martin was ever a judge on the Gong Show. Blows my mind, it does.

And everyone's favorite, slightly work-risque, the infamous Popsicle Twins act, which for some reason on the show was called "Have You Got a Nickel?" This was the act that got the show yanked for a while.

Man, oh, man. The Gong Show was Western Civilization at its apex.
