Act 4 – Todd Rixon

Another one from the ‘bad day at the office’ files.  As you may recall, the selection process for Pot Luck contestants was for Ernie to pull out a numbered card and whichever audience member/potential act had a matching card would be the next act up.  Many potential contestants obviously missed out, but some were fortunate enough to get a shot on stage.

This format was fraught with danger, not least of which being that the truly talentless being led onto the stage to perform without the benefit of a vetting process to keep them off screen.  Another unintended consequence of this format was that those performers that did get called up may not have had enough time to warm up properly prior to getting up on stage.  Enter Todd Rixon.

Todd, resplendent in a delightful semi-formal leotard, had intended to blow the judges away with a high-energy dance routine.  However, seconds into his performance, he pulled a hamstring, and had to limp away from stage.  To add insult to injury, he also managed to kick himself in the head.

About potluckarchive

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.
