Chuck Barris, whose game show empire included “The Dating Game,” ”The Newlywed Game” and that infamous factory of cheese, “The Gong Show,” has died. He was 87.
Barris died of natural causes Tuesday afternoon at his home in Palisades, New York, according to publicist Paul Shefrin, who announced the death on behalf of Barris’ family.
I know him best as the host of The Gong Show. Take it away Gene, Gene, the Dancing Machine. Dance for Chuck.
Huh. This is the second Chuck we’ve lost in the past few days. Godspeed Chucks.
