Act 2 – “Wenkyshafee”

Pot Luck attracted a lot of aspiring young dancers to, as they used to say in the 80s, ‘strut their stuff’.  This particular troupe of young females decided to choreograph a performance piece to ‘Relax’ by Frankie Goes To Hollywood, arguably the greatest song about male homosexual acts ever recorded.

Much of the act is laughably bad, however I did find a particularly captivating moment at 2:18.  Indeed, the uploader seemed to be captivated by this section of the performance.  Rather than give us Bernard’s feedback, they chose instead to repeat 2:18ish again.  And again.  AND AGAIN.   I know, it sounds like a bad thing, but it’s not.  Really, it’s not.  I’d go as far as to say it is the highlight of the whole act.

This never actually featured on The Late Show.  I have no idea how this slipped under their radar.

The web's first site dedicated to 'Pot Luck', a talent show made by the Grundy Organisation for Network Ten Australia. 'Pot Luck' ran for only one season in 1987, and enjoyed a mild revival in 1993 when some of the more ambitious acts were featured as filler on 'The Late Show' on ABC-TV. Best remembered for highly critical resident judge, Bernard King.

    Took me a while to figure out how the group would have come up with their name. Wendy, Kylie, Sharon and Fiona must have thought it was a great idea at the time. They remind me of the girls at my primary school who use to do their own choreography at lunch time.
