Bongo's Bingo is here again!!
Bongo’s Bingo is the UK phenomenon which has taken the country by storm. Selling out over 20 shows per month across 8 UK cities is an incredible experience, as Bongo’s Bingo continues to create an unprecedented demand which exceeds most major festivals; just recently 300,000 people in the Liverpool region were seeking to buy 5,000 tickets, a level of demand which is incredibly rare in any kind of event, let alone for…bingo.
It’s true that Bongo’s Bingo has to be seen to be believed – the show mixes the traditional elements of bingo with dance-offs, rave intervals, plenty of heckling, audience participation, endless hands-in- the-air anthems and the chance to bag some great – and not so great – prizes.
Each evening is presided over by one of its co-founders, the legendary Jonny Bongo, who holds court as part host, part DJ and past master of ceremonies. It’s a sublimely chaotic experience, and predictably unpredictable – no two shows are ever the same, yet there’s a familiar thread of distilled mayhem running through each and every Bongo’s Bingo.
