Chuck Barris was a wildly flamboyant 1970's TV Producer of such hit game shows as THE NEWLYWED GAME and THE DATING GAME, but is probably best remembered as the infamous host of THE GONG SHOW. "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" was turned into a movie in 2002, directed by and starring George Clooney, co-starring Drew Barrymore and Sam Rockwell. Miramax Books.
I loved this book. It sounds kind of farfetched but I guess it could be true. It is funny in spots and he writes just like I remember him on TV and the Gong Show. He was quite briliant in the game shows he came up with. A great read
