Calling The Numbers as a Celebrity
We have all played Bingo at some point right? When I was a young lad all those years ago the game used to fascinate me. Yes I can just about remember that far back, although my memory seems to be fading.
What was I talking about again, oh yes Bingo. I used to go along or get dragged along when I was at my Nan & Granddads. But I always enjoyed watching the game. So when I grew up and started doing impressions and voices, Bingo caller was something I ended up doing as a Bluecoat.
Back then Bingo Lingo was used a lot more than it is now, I know many miss the lingo as it’s part of the fun of the game. Two fat ladies as a bit of fun seems lost in todays politically correct society.
One of the reasons I started recoding the voices again was because I wanted to give customers the choice. I am very proud of our humour in the UK, it is based on innuendo and it’s just a bit of fun.
Ozzy Calls The Bingo
A customer of mine actually told me a funny story a few years ago. There was a funeral close to his pub and they were playing Bingo with my voice calling as Ozzy. Now that particular voice has swearing in it purely for the character. I was told that after the funeral many went into the pub and heard it saying it made them smile, which of course made me smile.
It was turned off in the end out of respect but I understand it was a talking point for a while. That for me is what Bingo is all about a fun pastime where you can win money or prizes. I am not here for any of that, but I can provide the voices. Check out my Bingo page for more details. Wherever you play, I hope you get a full house real soon.
