Funny Bingo Calls for Americans
Ok, surprise! I'm really a "trivia guy". I'm in my element when I'm hosting trivia nights. Being the quizmaster suits me perfectly. Even when I'm hosting music bingo, I'm always throwing in tidbits about the bands. (Did you know that Roxette, had four #1 hits in the 1980s?) Classic bingo, though it garners a fanatical following of players, needs a bit of spicing up for me as a host.
How do I solve this problem AND entertain my guests at the same time? Funny bingo calls, that's how!
I looked around the internet but most of what I found were British bingo calls that made references to very British things that were from at least the 1960s, if not earlier. I realized what we Americans needed was a good list of American funny bingo calls. References that people in the United States would understand.
The list I've created below are some classic calls that are still relevant. Some newer calls. And some I created myself. Here they are all in one place as a quick reference.
Yes, some of these are basically a dad joke in the form of a bingo call. (Which makes them PERFECT!)
I don't list a call for every bingo number because, frankly, less is more. You don't want to try to be funny every time you read out a ball. Nor would you want to do it every time the same ball pops up that night.
If you have any other fun ones you like, shoot me a note! I'd love to add them to the list!
