With the latest Government advice to stay at home, everyone’s looking for new ways to connect with friends and still have fun while staying in and following social distancing guidelines.
Step forward Bongo’s Bingo, who are showing with their latest experience that you don’t need to be out to have a good time. And being on your own certainly doesn’t have to mean being lonely.
Jonny Bongo and the team still want to keep everyone connected and together during this unprecedented time of self-isolation and lockdowns, so the new show, they say, is all about creating lots of much-needed fun, energy and escapism for everyone.
Bongo’s Bingo Live From The Bungalow brings it all together in a brand-new way – it’s live, it’s unscripted and it’s completely bonkers, broadcast from Liverpool in a hastily made studio that the team are now living under lockdown in.
The show is a mix of Bongo’s Bingo, Jonny’s pub quiz and whatever else the team throw in, with all the classic Bongo’s Bingo music and some of the much-coveted prizes the bingo rave has become known for.
There’s also live call ins, audience dares and more. It’s completely free, and you can join in from your sofa – players, who must be over 18, just need a UK phone number and piece of paper to play.
And it raises money for a good cause, too, since players are encouraged to donate to the NHS during each show.
Over just its first three live streams, audience numbers have has shot up from 3.5k to over 100k of viewers. In fact, it’s already entered the top 10 streams on Twitch.
The show’s Whatsapp phone went into meltdown on Saturday night, with 10k messages in 15 minutes.
And they promise that this week is going to be even crazier, with live streams on Thursday and Saturday, all from 8pm on Twitch.
See you there!
Bongo’s Bingo Live From The Bungalow is on Thursday 26th and Saturday 28th this week from 8pm. Next week’s streams will be on Tuesday 31st, Thursday 2nd and Saturday 4th. The show is free to watch, and the games are free to play – everyone needs a UK mobile phone and a pen and piece of paper to play. Players must be 18 or over.
