Before an extremely rowdy audience, Barris welcomed a line-up of disparate performers not seen since the days of The Ed Sullivan Show. Mixed in with current pop stars were singers from decades earlier, current and old-school comedians and the best--meaning worst--acts from The Gong Show. Nowhere else could you see a disco band followed by a woman who barks the lyrics to a song.
