Funny: The Gong Show


  • In general, any really horrible contestants.
  • In general, any time David Letterman showed up.
  • During one episode, Steve Martin tried to be a contestant, playing the banjo (which he can actually do, and quite well).
  • On another episode, the panel tied Chuck up and hosted the show themselves after he kept screwing up the contestant introductions.
  • Oingo Boingo showing up and completely baffling the judges with a three-piece band that quickly dengerates into a insane marching band tromping across the stage with a big paper mache dragon in tow
