GOING, GOING, GONG
If you get a kick out of the Amateur Female Jello Wrestling competitions at Arlenes Grocery, youre gonna love creator Dana Sterlings newest game, Gong Show $100 Cash Prize, which she likes to describe as a raunchy, fearless, so-good-youll-crap-your-pants variety show. Too young to remember the original, Chuck Barriss masterpiece 1970s talent show? Just think Americas Got Talent, but with better, more cynical judges and losers being gonged off the stage. In Sterlings game, however, its the audience that determines who gets the cash. Expect to hear horrible singer/songwriter wannabes warbling off-key, and a dude whose specialty is Hook-Up Karaoke, as well as a sexy boy-lesque act who gets everyone (including the audience) sticky with whipped cream.
