One I recall was a pensioner who played Honky Tonk piano.

Bernard told her she should team up with a drummer and trumpet player, and get a recording contract with K-Tel/ Hammard (don't remember which).
He also liked 'Piffy', the bell-playing young child dressed in a flamboyant suit. It's memorable for leading into the bit where Tom Gleisner does a similar act and is dragged away by security. :D

Channel 10's 40th birthday special is on Sunday 21 Aug at 8:30. It has Pot Luck bits and an appearance by a young Russell Crowe in some soap (hopefully still billed as Russ LaRoq as he was known in his 80's rock star days)
Singo's a pooftah!

It's a new blog! Read it before I lose interest in it...

My recall of Bernard's appraisal of 'Piffy' isn't that great. Did Bernard say Piffy was a "delightful child"?

Yeah, and he also gave Piffy high points for daring to compete against the formidable competition on offer.

Thanks. I'll look forward to watching Piffy when I get up to the DVD.

Um.... yes I do....

Kym Wilson "Holding Out For A Hero Season 2 Ep.6.
Picked out of the audience from the mystery board.

She says she "Singa and dances... or trys to.." got that right!

I have all the acts listed on my reference web site. http://www.tandarra.com/thelateshow under Toilet Break in the T-o-n-g-a section. :wink:

Only Piffy has his own page on my site at this stage. Who votes Kym should also?

Not that there's anything wrong with that!

How old would Kym be in the clip? Anyone?
