RSS icon Comments on Announcing the First-Ever Stranger Gong Show


I was all set to sign up, but apparently my flaming toddler juggling act is a little too edgy for your "gong show."

Big Enos from Smokey and the Bandit is not amused.

I'm assuming Tyra Banks won't be asked to be a judge...

Sadly, Jaye P Morgan is no longer with us....

But Seattle does have Les Nesman, Julie McCoy, the Professor, Susan Powter and the infamous Tom Skerrit...

No, no, the judges should be Dina Martina, Reggie Watts, and Cienna Madrid! ('cause this HAS to be a job for "Our Worst Enemy" (tm)).

It sounds like Pizzazz is back in mini form.

I love the Gong Show so much. I love how the judges are wearing tuxedos and tiaras. What a brilliant show. I'm there!

I wanted to see the end of that clip.

Fnarf will be competing.

Things go better with coke.

And Jaye P. Morgan is still around if you were implying that she's dead.

Absolutely no John Keister. Absolutely not.

Lloyd: I can guarantee that John Keister will never, ever be a judge for a Stranger event. However, if he signs up to compete, who am I to say no? Especially when Sarah Rudinoff's holding a gong wand?

Well, Schmader, if Keister comes on to do a little "funny thing happened over in Ballard" etc., a bull must be released onto the stage. If Pat Cashman can run out and rodeo-clown Keister to safety, Sesame Street 'end-of-skit' mayhem music must be played over the PA.
