"Gong Show" Judges Set

dattell2.jpgWhether or not you're ready for the next coming of "The Gong Show," it's on it's way -- and it's got a great panel of judges lined up.

OK, there's no Charles Nelson Reily or Rip Taylor, but Zap2it says that the pilot will include Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Brian Posehn ("The Sarah Silverman Show") and Steve Schirripa ("The Sopranos") on its panel.

Each episode will feature eight to 10 bizarre acts, judged by a revolving panel of three celebrity judges. Other comedians lined up for future episodes include Greg Giraldo, Jim Norton, JB Smoove, Andy Dick, Adam Carolla, Ron White -- and Kate Walsh? Dave Navarro? Sort of a bizarre mix, but it could get interesting.

"The Gong Show with Dave Attell" premieres Thursday, July 17 at 10:00 p.m. (EST) on Comedy Central. -- Rachel Cericola

Why not Rip Taylor as a judge? He was on it forever and had his own show. He is well known and still works all the time even today. Check out his web site. He has to be a heck of a lot funnier than Andy Dick was on the first show (I was in the audience). Dick was messed up on something and it took almost 4 hours to tape the 30 minute show because of him. Please bring Rip back! It would be fun to see old and new talent together.

I would love to see Rip back as well... I was just saying they don't have plans to have anyone from the old show appear.

Most of the Judges never headlined in Las Vegas..............Rip Taylor still does.
Most of the judges could not headline an Indian Casino for even one day.....Rip booked for a whole week at Northern Star.
If Jackass the movies can feature Rip then the producers of the New Gong show
should get Gonged.
