Chuck Barris

Post by Kitty » Wed Mar 22, 2017 7:49 am

Chuck Barris, the creator of The Gong Show has died at 87. I loved that show. I watched The Gong Show on gameshow network growing up. One thing I noticed most is that he clapped while he was talking. One time I counted how many times he clapped. My count was 47 times. :lol: anyway.... RIP Chuck Barris. Thank you for being a gameshow icon.

Oh wow, I used to watch that too. I'd never thought about the clapping, but he did do that constantly. Remember the Unknown Comic? Gene, Gene, the Dancing Machine? Thanks for the laughs, Chuckie Baby.

I remember Gene the dancing machine. Probably only because my dad's name is Gene lol
