ED2012 Comedy Review: Bogan Bingo (Bogan Bingo)

ED2012 5/5 Reviews ED2012 Comedy Reviews

Free. Australian. Bingo. Three things which when combined can only equal a gloriously good time. Led by the enthusiastically bawdy hosts, the rowdy audience is taken through a wild and lewd game of Bingo, strung with one-liners, banter, 80s sing-a-longs and a panda on a slide. Fantastically fun, joyfully silly and with funnier jokes than many full-blown comedy shows, there aren’t many better ways to while away an evening at the Festival. Presenting a well-crafted spectacle, the duo have a great presence and chemistry, playing off their country’s stereotypes in devastatingly hilarious fashion. If you love balls, the 80s, Australians and balls, then think of Bogan Bingo and mullet over – you won’t regret it.

Laughing Horse @ The Free Sisters, 9-26 Aug, 9.35pm
