Bogan Bingo

Thursday, April 8, 2010
Bogan Bingo is a comedy game show providing a great night for pubs, workplaces and social events.

It was created in 2005 to get the entire country in touch with their inner bogan. It began in Melbourne and is now in four states and two countries.

During games of bingo, the numbers are continually prompting parts of songs, jokes, group "shout outs" and air-guitar competitions that continually have the crowd being the stars of the show.

Calls are done over the top of an '80s anthem rock filled soundtrack that takes everyone back to the days of Guns 'n' Roses, Van Halen, Cold Chisel and Bon Jovi.

By the end of the night, everyone is waiting for the chance to yell out "bloody bingo", and sooner or later, after everyone has found their inner bogan, the retro rock can keep playing all night long.

The Retreat Hotel in Melbourne's Brunswick, Mortdale Hotel Sydney, Gilligans Backpackers in Cairns and Waterford Tavern in Perth are venues for you to check out this growing game.
