'The Gong Show'
The summer's most bizarre contender, and the crowning chapter in the completely nonsensical third act of Mike Myers' career. It's a reboot of the trash-classic 1970s game show – the late great Chuck Barris hosted the original Gong Show as a freewheeling mess of amateur singers, jugglers, magicians and a guy named the Unknown Comic who told godawful jokes while wearing a paper bag over his head. In this version, executive produced by Will Arnett, Myers hosts it in character – playing a 72-year-old London comedian Tommy Maitland, who appeared in forgotten flicks like He Wore a Dustman's Hat and From Russia, Luv, as well as hosting the popular Australian game show Dingo's Got The Baby. The new-model Gong Show will feature celebrity guest judges like Elizabeth Banks, Joel McHale and Andy Samberg – not to mention Dana Carvey, in a treat for Wayne's World shippers.
