He was one of my favorites on 'The Gong Show'

Some of you may be too young to understand. It's what passed for entertainment back in the day,

Check it out:

Gene, Gene the Dancing Machine!

Sad to hear, indeed.


Sometimes the thoughts in my head get so bored, they go for a stroll through my mouth. This is rarely a good thing.

In later seasons of the Gong Show, the cameras would cut between Gene dancing, Chuck Barris dancing and the studio audience going nutz!

One 1978 episode had JP Morgan flash the audience and Gene got bopped in the head with a bounced basketball (which also sent his hat flying). laugh

And by today's standards, the Gong Show would be considered hi brow entertainment compared to some of what's on.

Absurd Gong Show Fact: Danny Elfman (Uncle of Jenna Elfman from Darma and Greg), who has done the scores of many movies such as Spiderman, Big Fish, was the front man for early ska group called Oingo Boingo, (Wierd Science) . The had their first television appearance on the Gong Show under the name the "Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo". So great things did emerge from that show.
I still loved the Popsicle twins for some reason.
