Interview: Michael Warren the Pot Luck legend

In Season 2 Episode 13 of The Late Show, the golden tonsils of Michael Warren were broadcast to Australia’s ears during the Pot Luck toilet break segment, where amusing acts from the 1987 talent TV series are shown to much of our amusement – especially Bernard King’s harsh but fair remarks.

in this episode, Warren performed the Elvis Presley tune Don’t Cry Daddy. It was until after the performance ended, King put him on notice when he quizzed Warren on his talents, in which Warren infamously responded saying he’ll “be a Legend” and “be a millionaire by the time he’s 30”.

That was in 1987. Fast forward to 2022, and the Champagne Comedy Podcast caught up with Warren – or his stage name Lucky Jackson –  to reflect on performing on Pot Luck, as well as appearing on The Late Show, and if he’s a millionaire 30 years later.
