Hilarious Game Show Bloopers! Sure to give you a laugh, here are a bunch of bloopers from TV game shows from around the world. I'm not sure what's dumber, the shows themselves or the contestants!

While there were several different men playing Bozo in various TV markets across the United States, only one actor was the national face of the whacky but good-natured clown.

We rode in a station wagon hundreds of miles every day. We would take turns driving and sleeping in the back. We ate burgers at roadside taverns. We stopped and peed on the side of long stretches of a highway when we couldn't find a town anywhere near. Becoming a rock star was better than anything and beyond anything I ever imagined. There were moments of doubt for me that we were gonna make it.
This broadcast included Simmons's first televised interview, a conversation with Mike Douglas in which Simmons declared himself "evil incarnate", eliciting uncomfortable reactions from a confused studio audience.
Fellow Jewish-American guest Totie Fields Hello Hello / Give Me More - Various - Legends Classic Rock (DVD) it would be humorous if beneath all the make-up Simmons was "just a nice Jewish boy ". Simmons responded, "You should only know", to which Fields replied, "I do. You can't hide the hook ", a reference to the stereotypical "Jewish" nose.
Despite the publicity and constant touring, Kiss initially sold just 75, copies. Meanwhile, Hello Hello / Give Me More - Various - Legends Classic Rock (DVD) group and Casablanca Records were losing money quickly. The band while touring stopped in Los Angeles in August to begin recording its second album, Hotter Than Hellwhich was released on October 22, With Hotter Than Hell quickly dropping off the charts, Kiss was pulled from its tour to quickly record a new album.
Casablanca head Bogart stepped in to produce the next album, trading in the murky, distorted sound of Hotter Than Hell for a cleaner and slightly poppier sound.
Dressed to Killreleased on March 19,fared slightly better commercially than Hotter Than Hell. It also contained what later became the band's signature song, " Rock and Roll All Nite ". Although Kiss albums had not proved to be big sellers, the band was quickly gaining a reputation for its live performances. Kiss concerts featured such spectacles as Simmons spitting "blood" an effect made primarily from eggs, yogurt, red food coloring, and maple syrup and "breathing fire" spitting flammable liquid at a torchFrehley soloing as his guitar burst into flames light and smoke bombs placed inside the guitarCriss's elevating drum riser that emitted sparks, Stanley's Townshend -style guitar smashing, and pyrotechnics throughout the show.
By mid, Casablanca was almost bankrupt, and Kiss was in danger of losing its record contract. Both parties desperately needed a commercial breakthrough if they were to survive. Every night, I'd ask somebody before the show, 'How are we doing? All of a sudden it was becoming the norm. For me the first realization that things were on an upswing was when we played the Hara Arena in Dayton, Ohio. Before the show I went on stage, looked out through the curtain and saw this big crowd, and said to myself, 'My God, this is really happening!
Kiss wanted to express the excitement felt at Hello Hello / Give Me More - Various - Legends Classic Rock (DVD) concerts which its studio albums had so far failed to do with its first live album.
It was the first version of the Hello Hello / Give Me More - Various - Legends Classic Rock (DVD) with a guitar solo, and this recording has become the best-known version. It is also the basis of most covers, such as the cover by Poison in In recent years the band admitted that additional audience noise had been added to the album, as well as overdubs on select guitar and vocal spots, not to deceive fans, but to add more "excitement and realism" to the record.
The success of Alive! Following this success, Kiss partnered with producer Bob Ezrinwho had previously worked with Alice Cooper.
The result was Destroyer released March 15,Kiss's most musically ambitious studio album to date. Destroyerwith its rather intricate production using an orchestra, choir, and numerous tape effectswas a departure from the raw sound of the first three studio albums. Album art was designed by Ken Kellywho had drawn Tarzan and Conan the Barbarian and also produced album covers for acts such as Rainbow and Manowar.
Only when the ballad " Beth ", the B-side of the single " Detroit Rock City ", began to gain more airplay on FM radio did the album's sales rebound. The single was subsequently reissued with the A- and B-sides reversed. The show, co-produced by Bill Aucoin, helped introduce Kiss to an even wider audience. In addition to the three songs, Kiss was the subject of a brief comedic "interview" conducted by Paul Lynde. This included Lynde noting, when hearing the member's first names, "Oh, I love a good religious group.
Two more highly successful studio albums were released in less than a year: Rock and Roll Over November 11, and Love Gun June 30, A second live album, Alive IIwas released on October 14, All three albums were certified Platinum soon after their release.
In Japan, Kiss performed five sold-out shows at Tokyo's Budokan Hallbreaking the previous record of four set by the Beatles. Until you're faced with mass hysteria it doesn't really sink in.
For you not having been in a certain country makes them that much more rabid for you to go. In MayKiss made the first of its many comics appearances, in Howard the Duck issue 12, published by Marvel Comics.
The first Kiss compilation album, Double Platinumwas issued on April 2, This double album included many remixed versions of the band's hits, as well as "Strutter '78", a re-recorded version of a song from the group's first album. At Bogart's request, this version of the song featured a disco influence. During this period, Kiss merchandise became a substantial source of income for the group. Some of the products released included a pair of comic books issued by Marvel the first contained ink mixed with actual blood donated by the groupa pinball machine, dolls, "Kiss Your Face Makeup" kits, Halloween masks, board gameslunch boxes, trading cards and many other pieces of memorabilia.
Membership in the Kiss Armythe band's fan club, was in the six figures. Alive II was the band's fourth Platinum album in just under two years, and the ensuing tour had the highest average attendance in the group's history. The group, along with manager Aucoin, sought to push the brand harder. To that end, an ambitious, two-pronged strategy was devised for The first part involved the simultaneous release of four solo albums from the members of Kiss.
Although Kiss has claimed that the solo albums were intended to ease rising tensions within the band, its record contract did in fact call for four solo records, each of them counting as half an album toward the group's five-record commitment.
It was the first time that all current members of a rock band had released solo albums on the same day. For the band members, it was a chance to showcase their individual musical styles and tastes outside of Kiss, and in some cases to collaborate with contemporary artists. Simmons's was the most diverse of the four, featuring hard rock, ballads, Beatles -influenced pop and a cover version of " When You Wish Hello Hello / Give Me More - Various - Legends Classic Rock (DVD) a Star " from the Disney film Pinocchio.
The solo albums were released on September 18, Of the four, Simmons's album charted the highest in the U. The second part of Kiss's and Aucoin's plan called for the band to appear in a film that would cement its image of larger-than-life rock-and-roll superheroes. Filming commenced in the spring of Although the project was proposed to the band as a cross between A Hard Day's Night and Star Warsthe final result fell far short of those expectations.
It was released theatrically, after many changes, outside the U. The band members were unhappy with the finished film and would speak about their filmmaking experience in later interviews with a mix of humorous embarrassment and regret. They felt that the film portrayed them more as clowns than superheroes. The artistic failure of the film led to a rift between the band and Aucoin.
Kiss's first album of new material in two years, Dynastycontinued the band's Platinum streak. Session drummer Anton Fig performed almost all the percussion on the album while Criss recovered from an automobile accident. The only song to feature Criss's drumming was "Dirty Livin ' ", on which he also sang lead.
Billed as "The Return of Kiss", the Dynasty Tour was expected by Kiss and its management to build on the success of previous tours. Plans were drawn up for a Kiss-themed traveling amusement park called "Kiss World", but were abandoned because of the immense costs involved;  however, "The Return of Kiss" saw a marked decline in attendance. The crowds on this tour were much younger than previous audiences had been, with many preadolescent children in Kiss make-up with their mothers and fathers who were sometimes wearing the make-up themselves in tow at most concerts.
Kiss themselves did little to dissuade this new fan base, donning colorful costumes that reinforced a cartoonish image for these younger fans. The fans were unaware of the dissension within the band. One very public indication of the heightened friction within the group was an infamous October 31, interview on Tom Snyder 's late-night The Tomorrow Show. During the episode, a visibly irritated Simmons and Stanley attempted, unsuccessfully, to contain the inebriated Frehley, whose frequent laughter and joking overshadowed the conversation between Snyder and the rest of the band.
Criss made references to his large gun collection, to the chagrin of Simmons. By the end of the Dynasty tour in Decembertensions between Criss and the rest of the band were at an all-time high. His drumming skills had noticeably eroded, and he even intentionally slowed down—or stopped playing altogether—during some concerts.
The final show of the tour December 16, was the last time Criss performed with the group for almost 17 years, although he remained an official member for nearly six more months. Anton Fig played all the drums on the next album, Unmaskedalthough he was not credited, while Criss appeared on the cover. Showcasing a slick, contemporary pop sound, Unmasked released May 20, had the dubious distinction of being the first non-Platinum Kiss album since Dressed to Kill.
Soon after the album's release, Criss's departure was officially announced. The band auditioned dozens of replacements for Criss in June One of the many who auditioned was Tico Torres who would later be with Bon Jovi.
They finally settled on a little-known drummer-guitarist-pianist-keyboardist-singer from Brooklyn named Paul Charles Caravello born July 12, who adopted the stage name Eric Carr. His first make-up design was modeled on a hawk, though it was rejected as Stanley felt it looked more like a chicken. Carr ultimately settled on a "Fox" persona.
This was Kiss's only U. The band's tour of Australia and New Zealand, on the other hand, was one of the biggest in its history, as they played to sold-out crowds and received overwhelmingly positive press coverage. For its next album, the band worked again with producer Ezrin, with whom Kiss had found success on Destroyer.
Early press reports indicated that the new album would be a return to the hard rock style that had originally brought the band success. However, 's Music from "The Elder" was a concept album featuring medieval horns, strings, harpsand synthesizers. The album was presented as a soundtrack to a film that was never made, making it difficult to follow the storyline.
To make matters worse, having received negative feedback following its record company's preview of the album, Kiss altered the record's track sequence in most countries to emphasize potential singles "The Oath" and "A World Without Heroes", which all but guaranteed the inability of listeners to understand the already-muddled storyline.
Once released, fan reaction to The Elder was harsh; it failed to achieve Gold status and peaked at No. The band made only two appearances in support of the new album, both in January One was a performance on the ABC late-night variety program Fridayswhile the second was a lip-synced performance that was broadcast via satellite during Italy's Sanremo Music Festival.
Absent from the satellite performance was Frehley, who had become increasingly frustrated with Kiss's new musical direction. Upset with the band's decision to record Music from "The Elder"he did not actively participate in the album's creation, providing lead vocals for only one track, "Dark Light".
He did not appear at a special concert at Studio 54 in New York City, leaving Kiss to perform as a trio. He recorded his guitar parts at his home studio in Wilton, Connecticutand mailed them to Ezrin. Another source of frustration for Frehley was that with the departure of Criss, and with Carr not being an equal partner in the band, he was often outvoted 2-to-1 on group decisions.
In JuneFrehley's departure from the band was negotiated, although he did not officially leave until December. Soon afterward, Kiss made major changes to its business dealings — chief among them was severing ties with its manager of nine years, Bill Aucoin, and cutting back on its unwieldy organizational tree.
Although Frehley had already decided to leave the band, he was pictured on the covers of 's Killers and Creatures of the Nightalthough he did not participate in the recording of either album. Creatures of the Night October 13, was Kiss's heaviest album to date, and although it fared better than Music from "The Elder"it peaked at only No. In Frehley's absence, Kiss utilized a number of guitarists for the recording of the album, including Vinnie Vincent.
Frehley's last appearance with the band until the reunion was in the music video for the single " I Love It Loud ", which was co-written by Vincent. Frehley also appeared on the cover of the original Creatures of the Night album artwork. When the album was remixed and re-released in with a non-makeup cover and a slightly different song order, to reflect the band's roster change and abandonment of its make-up and costumes, Vincent was again absent from the album cover, as then-current lead guitarist, Bruce Kulickappeared instead.
Vincent officially replaced Frehley as lead guitarist in Decemberas the band embarked on its 10th Anniversary Tour. Vincent originally wanted to use his birth name in the band, but this was vetoed by Simmons on the grounds that it sounded "too ethnic". Specifically, according to Simmons, "it sounded like a fruit vendor". Simmons went on to note that "fairly or unfairly, rock and roll is about the image". Simmons later suggested the name change to "Vinnie Vincent".
Vincent started actively pushing to join Kiss as a full member. Despite the misgivings that both Simmons and Stanley harbored about his personality, Vincent was taken into the band. Stanley designed a character, "the Wiz"   also known as "the Egyptian Warrior",  and make-up centered around an Egyptian ankhfor Vincent. A persona as "the Ankh Warrior" or similar is not mentioned in the book at all.
Vincent's personality did not mesh well with either Stanley or Simmons, and he was dismissed from Kiss at the end of the Creatures tour. He was quickly reinstated before recording started for Lick It Up because Simmons and Stanley could not find a new lead guitarist on such short notice. Vincent appeared on the cover of Lick It Up and was credited as the lead guitarist. He received a writing credit for eight of the ten songs on the album. Personality issues arose once again, and Vincent was fired following the Lick It Up tour, due in part to excessive guitar soloing at a concert in Quebec.
He was replaced by Mark St. Vincent and the band parted ways. Persistent rumors circulated for years among Kiss fans regarding the true reason for Vincent's dismissals from Kiss, with at least one band member refusing to comment except to say that legally it was not up for discussion. It quickly became a hit in New York underground dance clubs and night clubs. Beastie Boys threatened to sue them over the use of the song.
Following the success of "Cooky Puss", the band began to incorporate rap into their sets. Through spending time with the Beasties I grew to see that they had this great sense of humour. It wasn't that they were assholes, and even if it was, they were funny with it. As the band was transitioning to hip hop, Schellenbach was fired in with Diamond taking over on drums. In their memoir, Ad-Rock expressed regret for firing Schellenbach, which he attributed to her not fitting with the "new tough-rapper-guy identity".
The band recorded Licensed to Ill in and released it on November 15, The album was favorably reviewed by Rolling Stone magazine.
Licensed to Ill became one of the best-selling rap albums of the s and the first rap album to go number 1 on the Billboard chart, where it stayed for five weeks. Although the group has sold over 26 million records in the US, this is their only single to peak in the US top ten or top twenty. The band took the Licensed to Ill tour around the world the following year. The tour was troubled by lawsuits and arrests, with the band accused of provoking the crowd. This culminated in a notorious gig at the Royal Court Theatre, LiverpoolEngland, on May 30,that erupted into a riot approximately 10 minutes after the group hit the stage and the arrest of Adam Horovitz by Merseyside Police.
He was charged with assault causing grievous bodily harm. Produced by the Dust Brothersit blends eclectic samples and has been described as an early work of experimental hip hop. Mario Caldato, Jr. Check Your Head was released in and was certified double Platinum in the US and peaked at number 10 on the Billboard The band returned to their hardcore punk roots for the song "Time for Livin'", a cover of a Sly and the Family Stone song. The addition of instruments and the harder rock sound of the album could be considered a precursor to the nu metal genre of music to come out in the later half of the s.
The group owned Grand Royal Records until The issue of the magazine contained a memorable piece on the mullet. The Oxford English Dictionary cites this as the first published use of the term, along with the lyrics from the band's song, "Mullet Head". That term was not heard in the s, even though that decade has retroactively been hailed as the mullet's peak in popularity. Also inthe band released Some Old Bullshitfeaturing the band's early independent material, made number 46 on the Billboard independent charts.
Beastie Boys headlined at Lollapalooza —an American travelling music festival—intogether with The Smashing Pumpkins. The Milarepa Fund aims to raise awareness of Tibetan human rights issues and the exile of the Dalai Lama. InYauch organized the largest rock benefit show since 's Live Aid — the Tibetan Freedom Concerta two-day festival at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco that attracted overattendees. Inthe popularity of Beastie Boys was underlined when tickets for an arena tour went on sale in the US and Madison Square Garden and Chicago's Rosemont Horizon sold out within 30 minutes.
The band also released Aglio e Olioa collection of eight songs lasting just 11 minutes harking back to their punk roots, in The in Sound from Way Out! InBeastie Boys decided to sample portions of the sound recording of "Choir" by James Newton in various renditions of their song "Pass the Mic". The band did not obtain a license from Newton to use the composition.
Pursuant to their license from ECM Records, Beastie Boys digitally sampled the opening six seconds of Newton's sound recording of "Choir", and repeated this six-second sample as a background element throughout their song. The district court granted Beastie Boys summary judgment. The decision was affirmed on appeal. The album featured bombastic beats, rap samples, and experimental sounds. At the ceremony in the wake of the horror stories that were coming out of Woodstock 99Adam Horovitz addressed the fact that there had been many cases of sexual assaults and rapes at the festival, suggesting the need for bands and festivals to pay much more attention to the security details at their concerts.
Beastie Boys started an arena tour in Through Ian C. Rogers,  the band made live downloads of their performances available for their fans, but were temporarily thwarted when Capitol Records removed them from its website. InHello Hello / Give Me More - Various - Legends Classic Rock (DVD) Boys had planned to co-headline the "Rhyme and Reason Tour" with Rage Against the Machine and Busta Rhymesbut the tour was canceled when drummer Mike D suffered a serious injury due to a bicycle accident.
By the time he recovered, Rage Against the Machine had disbanded, although they would reunite seven years later. InAdam Yauch started building a new studio facility, Oscilloscope Laboratoriesin downtown ManhattanNew York  and the band started work on a new album there. To the 5 Boroughs was released worldwide on June 15, The album was the cause of some controversy with allegations that it installed spyware when inserted into the CD drive of a computer.
The band stated in mid that they were writing material for their next album and would be producing it themselves. Despite initial confusion regarding whether the album would have lyrics as opposed to being purely instrumental, the Mic-To-Mic blog reported that Capitol Records had confirmed it would be strictly instrumental and erroneously reported a release date scheduled for July 10, On May 1,this was further cemented by an e-mail  sent to those on the band's mailing list — explicitly stating that the album would be all instrumental:.
OK, here's our blurb about our new album—it spits hot fire! They worked with Reverba non-profit environmental organization, on their summer tour.
In FebruaryYauch revealed their forthcoming new album had taken the band's sound in a "bizarre" new direction, saying "It's a combination of playing and sampling stuff as we're playing, and also sampling pretty obscure records. We had a bus driver years ago who used to drive Elvis' back up singers. His name was Tadlock and Elvis gave him a pair of glasses which he was very proud of.
So for some reason that title— Tadlock's Glasses —has just been bouncing around. On May 25,it was announced during an interview on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon that the name of their new album would be Hot Sauce Committee and was set for release on September 15  with the track listing of the album announced through their mailing list on June In June, the group appeared at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival and performed the new single from the album titled "Too Many Rappers" alongside rapper Nas who appears on the track.
It would be the last live performance by Beastie Boys as a trio. Basically we were making Pt 1, had too many songs, so we recorded some more songs.
Which sounds bizarre but it actually worked out, because it made it clear to us which songs were going to be on Then we had this whole other album of songs Pt 1's going to be your regular CD in the stores and to download, but Pt 2 is going to be released in More of a style. You could get in the shower one day and, boom, all of a sudden you're showered with MP3s.
Or we might send people a seven-inch every few weeks, so you have a whole box set. On July 20, Yauch announced on the band's official YouTube channel  and through the fan mailing list, the cancellation of several tour dates and the postponement of the new album  due to the discovery of a cancerous tumor in his parotid gland and a lymph node. The group also had to cancel their co-headlining gig at the Osheaga Festival in Montreal  and also another headlining spot for the first night of the All Points West Festival in Jersey City, New Jersey.
An email dated October 18 read: "Although we regret to inform you that Hot Sauce Committee Part 1 will continue to be delayed indefinitely, Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 will be released on time as originally planned in spring of In what can only be described as a bizarre coincidence, following an exhaustive re-sequence marathon, Beastie Boys have verified that their new Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 will be composed of the same 16 tracks originally slated for inclusion on Hot Sauce Committee Part 1.
The record part 2 that is will be released as planned in spring on Capitol. The tracks originally recorded for Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 which now are actually back on Part 1 have now apparently been bumped to make room for the former Hot Sauce Committee Part 1 material.
