Humorous moments at the Selwyn Toogood shows at Gisborne included the customary hunt for the boy with the "dirtiest knees". At left is Pete Carlyle, who won this doubtful honour on the second night, had a long session with the compere on the stage steps. At right is boy who called out "Chicken," as Selwyn was swallowing one of his raw eggs. He was brought to stage, where Selwyn kept glowering at him and thrusting a glass-and-egg at him. Eventually the boy took the egg and downed it at a gulp, to everyone's amusement.
