Storyline

A television favorite blasts back with a cutting-edge, Comedy Central spin. Equal parts talent competition and house party, The Gong Show With Dave Attell unleashes a revolving trio of outspoken celebrity judges (including Ron White, Adam Carolla, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, and Jenna Jameson) on the most outrageous, unpredictable acts ever assembled. With comedian Dave Attell presiding over the offbeat, off-the-wall antics, this Gong Show is taking it to a whole new level.

This really isn't good.
21 July 2008 | by it_works_for_meSee all my reviews

I expected this show to be hilarious. Dave Attell cracks me up and I loved Insomniac, but this show is as unnecessary as it is boring. About one person per episode is actually talented, and they usually don't get the credit they deserve. The two guys that won the episode I watched slapped themselves to make noise. The guy who had a musical performance on crystal glasses filled with water was amazing and didn't get the credit he deserved. At no part did I find this show entertaining. There really wasn't even a set of credentials for how to rank the contestants. The guest judges (who are washed up and not funny) just assigned an arbitrary number from 1-500 to the contestants. Extremely disappointed with Dave Attell, I vowed to never watch this show again.
