Join us on the 1st Monday of the month at The 86 Cabaret Bar in Fitzroy, for a hilarious game of Bingo hosted by our experienced ball ladies Maureen McGilicuddy & Edith Vale along with their reluctant groupie and cesspool of human bile Caroline Springs, for the award winning comedy night...'GRANNY BINGO'.

With special guests every month who have included; Rhonda Burchmore, Joel Creasey, Fiona O'Laughlin, Tom Ballard, Josh Thomas, Peter Hitchener, Rob Mills, Celia Pacquola, Denise Scott, Tina Del Twist, Simon Burke, Anne Edmonds, Rhys Nicholson and Australian icon Patti Newton among so many other exciting personalities.  

The Grannies are becoming a huge hit on the comedy scene having won the 2017 Melbourne International Comedy Festival's illustrious award The Golden Gibbo.  This was followed by their victory in 2018 when they won the festival's Lip Sync Challenge, check out those and other video's here.

The comedy is broken up with the ladies pulling their ping pong balls out and waiting for the elusive shout out 'BINGO', where it could be you picking something from Maureen's chest or plucking an old chook.  There are $50 drink vouchers or the famous meat tray suitable for everyone, even Vegans* to be won.  

So launch yourself into the new month and week with an insulting dose of comedy from the 2017 Melbourne International Comedy Festival winners.....Edith, Maureen & Caroline.
