Rest In Peace Chuck Barris

He was most noted for his role as the host of The Gong Show and he was the Author of Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind, which made into a feature film directed by George Clooney. While it may seem quaint by modern standards, The Gong Show could be seen as a hybrid reality/talent game show with a comedic edge long before programs like Star Search, Showtime At The Apollo and Dance Fever and even longer before contemporary shows like America's Got Talent and The Voice. Mr. Barris was 87 years old.
