Re: Pot Luck Classics and Young Talent Time

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 Shopping Centre. This was back in the late seventies, before such events would attract a crushing crowd of people, making safety a problem. I think I met Tina Arena, and Rob McCulloch.

A member of the Young Talent Team went to my high school. I won't name drop, since I didn't know her personally, but a few of my classmates in VCE Media Studies and English Literature were friends of her's because she was part of the drama/ school production clique.

She did cop a lot of garbage in the school yard about being on YTT.

One of my sister's friends from school, had an older sister. She went to the Moomba festival, and spotted Joey Perrone on a pirate ship ride at the Moomba carnival. Fans were calling out to him. He waved. However, not being a fan, she instead gave Joey Perrone an obscene hand gesture.

No. Or maybe yes. Use what exactly?

Hey - I posted on this strand on 18 Jan 2007 and I would hardly say that this is 'a couple of years' ago...

Pot Luck Classics

Post by foolhardycousingeorge » Sat Jun 26, 2010 8:37 pm

This thread hasn't been active for a few years.

Pot Luck contestant, Chris Lopes attended my high school.

According to a classmate whose younger brother also went to my high school, then attended the same university that I did, the Monday after Chris Lopes' act aired as a Toilet Break on The Late Show, he copped it something rotten.
