Bring out your in­ner bo­gan

WHAT hap­pens when you mix bo­gans with bingo? You get Bo­gan Bingo, a cross be­tween a live com­edy show and a bingo com­pe­ti­tion.

The tour­ing show will be in Kin­garoy on Oc­to­ber 28 as part of a fundraiser for the Kin­garoy Dance Academy’s USA tour.

Deb Han­nessen is the or­gan­iser of the Kin­garoy event.

“It’s some­thing dif­fer­ent for the area,” Ms Han­nessen said.

“It’s half game show, half party. The bingo caller calls out num­bers while their bud­dy­ing DJ plays songs from the ‘80s and ‘90s that rhyme with those num­bers.

“Ev­ery­one will get two games of bingo. It’s more of a com­edy gag as well as bingo.”

Ms Han­nessen said ev­ery­one who came along was en­cour­aged to dress up and let out their in­ner bo­gan.

“Ob­vi­ously a mul­let is a pop­u­lar thing to wear,” she said.

“Also a flan­nelet shirt, thongs, footy shorts, blue sin­glets, Bonds sin­glets.”

Ms Han­nessen said the event would also have a true-blue Aussie bar­bie as well as plenty of tin­nies and stub­bies to go around.

“There will be prizes for bingo, prizes for best dressed, air gui­tar com­pe­ti­tions, ev­ery­thing bo­gan you can think of,” she said. “It’s go­ing to be great.” Bo­gan Bingo will be held on Oc­to­ber 28 at the Kin­garoy Show­grounds from 6pm.

Tick­ets for the adult only event are $30, which in­clude en­try, two games of bingo and a graz­ing plater for each ta­ble.

Tick­ets are avail­able at An­der­s­son’s Fruit Mar­ket and CTC Me­chan­i­cal Kin­garoy.
