The Gong Show-Featuring the Worms

Originally posted on: AmericaOnCoffee

Produced by Chuck Barris, The Gong show’s many running gags and characters who appeared as regular performers were The Worms.

The Worm, a supposed “dance craze” consisting of three men who flung themselves to the floor and wriggled on the ground. At the end of each of their performances, Barris would come out and say “One – More – Time!” The Worm would often be performed four or five times in succession before the commercial break interrupted the men’s performance.
