Three Celebrities Who Would Make Great Bingo Ball Callers
Yes, Morgan Freeman's in There Somewhere
Bingo has started to shed its “little old ladies’ game” image during the past few years. Nowadays, you can find everything from hip hop and indie to Game of Thrones and Michael Bay bingo nights at clubs, bars, and restaurants.
Tech advances have also made the game more accessible. You can find a whole slew of bingo apps and games for both Android and iOS devices. It’s even penetrated the social media scene, as evidenced by the Cheeky Bingo Twitter account and countless others like it.
Apart from mixing the popular game with such diverse topics as music and TV, organizers and promoters have also caught on to the fact that nothing can bring more people to a bingo game quite like a celebrity ball caller can. Paris Hilton, Robbie Williams, and Courtney Cox all had a stint as bingo callers for various charity bingo games.
With the sheer number of celebrities and well-known personalities out and about in the world, who else would make for good bingo ball callers? Here’s a short list of people that we think should definitely try doing it; if not for charity then just because it would be all kinds of awesome.
Morgan Freeman – His distinctive voice has made him a favorite for narrations and meme makers. He’s also played God in the movies, and who wouldn’t want to have God instructing them which numbers to mark on their bingo cards?
Lil Jon – Known for his distinctive “yeah”s, Lil Jon’s background as a rapper would definitely make him more than capable of dishing out rhymes to go with the numbers. Or he could just do it all erudite like how Dave Chapelle portrayed him in the old Lil Jon skits on Chapelle’s Show. It’s this or more Zumba for the King of Crunk.
Christopher Walken – Walken’s deadpan delivery and unusual speech patterns would definitely make for one memorable night of bingo for all involved. That long stare with the slight smile might make the entire experience a bit creepy, but a memorable kind of creepy nonetheless.
