The reboot of The Gong Show is serving up some of the finest amateur shows one can find at freak shows and on YouTube. During the July 6 episode, The Gong Show host Tommy Maitland (Mike Myers) will introduce Nana the Cat Lady onto the stage. She will perform (she likes to sing and dance) while wearing a schoolgirl’s uniform and cat accessories. The judges — former SNL star Dana Carvey, and black-ish stars Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson will decide her fate on the show.
Nana the Cat Lady is more than a wacky cat-loving young woman — she’s an artist, really. Check out her brilliant parody of “Andy Warhol Eating a Hamburger” (both videos below). The film of Warhol was created by Danish filmmaker Jorgen Leth, and it appears in his “66 Scenes from America” which was filmed in 1981. P.S. That’s a Burger King Whopper Warhol eats. The Gong Show airs Thursdays at 10pm on ABC.
