Steve Martin Sparkles on the Gong Show


In this clip from 1976, Steve Martin brings his amazing talent to the Gong Show as the banjo playing “Biff”. I love the idea of the judge of a show actually trying to compete on that show, it takes the Gong Show to a different level.

    Great footage! I was influenced by Steve Martin and Charlie Daniels to play the banjo. I took enough lessons to learn a few songs but I lack the natural talent that all good musicians have.
