Funny Bingo Calls

The whole point of playing bingo is to have a laugh (well it is for most of us!). So to introduce some funny bingo calls can only make the evening even more fun. Of course we all have a different idea of what’s funny. But that doesn’t matter here. If you as the bingo caller introduce some calls which no-one laughs at – no problem! It’s just another bingo call along with the others!

If you really enjoy your bingo it’s probably worth taking a look at some online bingo sites too. But don’t expect any clever or funny ’69’ jokes!

The following are our current top 5 bingo sites – all are a fun way to try and win some real cash.

When does a bingo call become a funny one?

So what is it that makes a funny bingo call? Anything new or clever can be funny. There’s nothing funny about ‘Jimmy Choo’. But it sounds so out of place in a supposedly traditional bingo game. The same with ‘charity run’ and ‘feng shui’ etc.

Celebrity names always create funny bingo calls – Andrea Corr, Gok Wan etc.

Many bingo calls aren’t funny until you explain them – Snow White’s number, Sherwood Forrest etc. It may be that you can stop and explain the meaning. Otherwise it can still be humorous to those ‘in the know’.

And of course there’s risqué – ‘getting plenty’ – right up to downright filth – ‘two can chew’. But – judge your audience! The funny bingo calls you use in the village bingo down the pub are not the same ones you can use at the Women’s Institute Coffee Morning!

The reasoning behind some of these funny bingo calls are in brackets. For the others check out Bingo Lingo for the call origin.

These funny bingo calls have been collected from several sources. Butlins introduced many in 2004. Anne Summers Bingo (no longer running) introduced some more. And a special thank you to Listopia – though some of their funny bingo calls were just TOO extreme!
