Act 10 – Ian Evans

Ladies and gentlemen, what you are about to witness is arguably the world’s slowest ever one man band.    Vocals, horns, percussion … Ian Evans had it all.  He even had an absolute pearler of a gold lamê shirt.  Not lame … lamê.

One can be forgiven for suspecting that the shirt gave Ian super powers.  The super powers being the uncanny ability to channel Louis Armstrong from beyond the grave.

Indeed, the act was so powerful, it also managed to channel some laughter from Ernie – look closely at the top right hand corner around 1:43 and you’ll see the faint outline of Ernie rocking back and forth trying not to piss himself.    I know exactly how he feels.

If I’m brutally honest, this is one act that is solid gold in a sea of solid brown.   Arguably my favourite Pot Luck act ever.

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.
