If you think it’s just a game for your granny, then say hello to Bongo’s Bingo, joining us on the road trip this year to Mayrhofen for two über special bingo sessions and a residency within the Fun Haus, the anarchic new SB venue packed with fun, games, covers acts and more silliness then Hans the Butcher attempting stand-up... And alongside Pat Sharp, Eddie the Eagle, a ream of superb covers bands and much more awesome oddities, we reckon the Bongo's lads are going to fit in just fine!
Bongo's Bingo at SB17!
The Bingo sensation is heading to SB17... It's time to call HOUSE in the Funhaus!
The sedate British pastime has been given a new outrageous lease of life by turning into something more akin to a rave. Bongo’s Bingo, hosted by the flamboyant Jonny Bongo, has been selling out weekly in Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds for the past 18 months. Prizes have included a sailing boat, a Porsche, mobility scooters and most incredibly... Boxes of Coco Pops. Jonny Bongo is known for hosting outrageous pub quizzes and holds the record for the biggest one ever (has someone told him we also own a few Guiness records ourselves...).
His hilarious rounds of bingo and quick wit and iconic put downs have made him the talk of the Bingo scene and beyond, and organiser Joshua Burke explains: “We still cannot believe the events have been so popular. “This is no doubt thanks to our amazing host Jonny Bongo who works the room into a frenzy, shouting things like ‘I’m in Love with the Coco’ amongst many other bizarre rituals and hilarious tangents... Bongo’s Bingo appeals to a huge variety of people who all absolutely love it. We are really excited to be bringing the concept to Snowbombing!"
It’s an insane and unique atmosphere and has turned into a something of a phenomenon... It has to be seen to be believed! Line up your team, grab your pint and your score cards and we'll see you down the front...
