She was born April 1st 1973 so she would have been 13 or 14 at the time as Potluck was made in 1987.

Just re-watched that old bloke who forgot what the song was and Bernard gave him a roasting because he hadn't prepared. And that if you prepared well, even the most nervous of people would be able to glide on by without anyone in the audience noticing how stage-frightened they actually were. 'Five.' I love how the bloke rolls his eyes at the end.

Help me out here.

What was it that Ernie Sigley would say to end each episode of Pot Luck?

I was thinking about my school holidays in 1987, and I remembered how Channel 10 would play movies like The Pirate Movie(!)

I sat down to watch just as Pot Luck ended.

Did Ernie say "It's nice to be important, but it's important to be nice"?

    Close... It was Graham Kennedy who said at the end of every Blankety Blanks episode, 'It's nice to be important, But It's important to be nice'.

    Now in the UK Bruce Forsyth has been saying 'Nice to see you, to see you nice' for years, but which came first? Graham or Bruce????

    All right, I have more than one word.

    Does anyone know what happened to Michael Warren? He was the bearded bloke who sang 'Don't Cry Daddy'. Tone's copy of it was in terrible colour and he apologised for it saying that Grundy's had lost the tape or something. Anyway the post song synopsis from Bernard was a true classic:
    BK - Do you have a particular ambition young man?
    MW - A very big one. I'm going to become a legend.
    BK - So how many singing lessons will you be taking?
    MW - I'm going to be an entertainer. I'm going to make movies.
    BK - Are you? And in how many years do you expect to achieve this...
    MW (smiling like a goon) - I'll be a millionaire by the time I'm 30.
    BK - Yes....(pauses)....I suppose in this crowded and confused world there's room for yet another dithering, shambling mess...modern entertainment is so perverse. If you find a gimmick, there might be a gimmick you could add to the little you have to offer. Stripping might do it. Sixteen.

    Those comments are pure and utter gold. I wonder whether he has made his first million yet? Or turned to stripping for that matter?

Him and his friend saw Joey Perrone in the street one day and starting hanging shit on him by pretending to cry. Joey walked over and punched him in the gut.

    I have vague recollections of being taken to meet members of the Young Talent Team at Northland
