With the reality now sinking in of the new lockdown, it is fair to say that 2021 is, so far, a continuation of 2020.
With precious few highlights to cherish in what has truly been an incredibly challenging 10 months for everyone, being cooped up again across the UK is a sobering thought.
But fear not. Jonny Bongo and the Bongo’s Bingo team are launching a brand new and completely free show this Saturday 9th January on Twitch – fully live and brimming with chaos, magic and mayhem for some already much needed escapism. It’s time to get ready for Bongo’s Got Talent, channelling the anarchic spirit of weekend TV.
It was Bongo’s Bingo’s initial run of live shows on Twitch in April and May which saw millions of people tuning in as the wildly successful experiential concept reached out to the nation, beaming straight into their living rooms. And now the search is on for the UK’s most talented dancers, singers, magicians, stand-ups, gymnasts, onion eaters, egg headers or something completely unique. No talent is too weird or crazy for the show.
The public will pick their favourite talent, alongside Jonny, Rich Furness and a *Special Guest Judge* (just don’t get too excited), and gift the lucky winner a feast of Bongo’s Bingo prizes, including:
• A Henry Hoover
• A Giant Pink Fluffy Unicorn
• A Disney Princess Set (including Elsa)
• Tickets to a Bongo’s Bingo Summer Show of your choice &
• £500 CASH CASH MONEY!!!
This is completely free to enter and watch on Twitch. And each Saturday during the lockdown there will be a Bongo’s Bingo show on Twitch to get the nation entertained.
Before the pandemic, Bongo’s Bingo was in over 40 UK locations and more around the world, selling out shows months in advance and close to selling 2m tickets. And it will be back. But for now, sit back and strap in for Bongo’s Got Talent.
Here is all the info on how to enter:
1. Record a video in LANDSCAPE mode
2. Tell us your name
3. Tell us a little bit about yourself
4. Tell us what talent you’ll be performing and take it away!
5. Get your entries emailed into email@example.com by 11am on Saturday morning.
Watch the madness unfold live from 8pm at: WWW.TWITCH.COM/BONGOSBINGO
