My favorite episode of The Gong Show is the one where every single contestant who comes out, sings “Feelings”. Of course, the great Chuck Barris acts as if he has no idea what’s going on. After the first two contestants perform, Chuck pledges to get to the bottom of this confusion, and apologizes for the mix up, only to bring out the next guest who, of course sings “Feelings”.
The audience growing restless at this point, Chuck assures them he’ll get this straightened out, before bringing out the next contestant who sings “Feelings”. And so on and so forth until the hilarious ½ hour was up. What a great show and a great character.
Living to 87 is no short change, so RIP to the great Chuck Barris.
