Will there be a bar?
Bad news - no. Good news - you can bring your own!
It would be great (mandatory/obligatory) for the evening if each member of the audience brings a wrapped prize.
But what should I bring?
Well anything you can wrap. It could be:
- That unwanted Christmas present from this year or from the big pile of them at the back of your pants draw. Or all of them!
- A cake, food, sweets, chocolate or drink
- Something to wear that no longer fits
- Something from the shed
- The keys to that Porsche that's been costing you money to garage but is too small for the family
- Something a bit edgey. You draw the line.
- If you're feeling flush, perhaps a chocolate orange.
My imagination is running wild, can I bring more than one prize?
Yes, as many as you like.
Is it like a jumble sale where I can dump my junk but everything is free?
No, please wrap each item.
Can I use christmas wrapping paper?
Of course! You can use anything you like, even newspaper. Or a Louis Vitton bag (my wife likes that one for £1939). You can just bung it in an Aldi (or Waitrose - this is Effingham!) bag if you are in a rush.
Will it be funny?
Funny is in the eye of the beholder. Jes will certainly find it funny.
Jes sounds like an amazing star comedian, will most of the money go to him?
You're right he is. But Jes is giving up his time for free, although he might get his meal gratis (if he forgets to pay - awkward).
Is Jes one of those that picks on people near the front?
No, Jes picks on everyone, especially those cowering at the back.
Will I be cooler because I can say I went to Effingham KGV Comedy Charity Bingo Night?
Will my life improve after experiencing EKCCBN?
Yes, if you bring at least one wrapped prize and you enjoy yourself (guaranteed).
Will I have time to chat to my friends (I am a busy person so my work/life balance is seriously out of kilter)?
Yes. You dont have to pay any attention to the Bingo. In fact the Bingo is only there to fill those awkward silences.
Can I heckle?
Yes, Jes loves hecklers. But there is a fine line, make sure you are just on the right side.
