What do the City of Chicago, the Chicago Antique Market, the cutting edge Annoyance Theatre, Chicago’s
long running hit “
Sunday School Cinema,” and a bevy of party planners and satisfied clients have in
common?  They’ve all fallen in love with the hilarious interactive, fast paced reality game show that’s been
hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “Hilarious,” Chicago magazine as “Uproarious” and has been a five-time
“Best Bet” by Metromix.com and a
“Critic’s Choice” by the Chicago Reader.

Welcome to
Dick O’Day’s Big, Lovely Bingo, the show that has delighted audiences of all ages and
sizes for over 20 years.  Wacky bingo meister
Dick O’Day (portrayed by Emmy award winning performer
Richard Knight, Jr.) and his colorful assistant guide viewers through multiple rounds and variations of the
traditional bingo game, each given a hilarious, unique spin by the host the Chicago Reader has said,
“might get beaten up on a regular basis if he weren’t so damn funny.”  Dick warms up his audiences with
a little Jane Fonda aerobics, selects guests to act as temporary “prize models,” interacts with delighted
spectators and makes sure the game playin’ and kitschy prizes keep a’comin’!
Celebrating 23 Years of Letter Callin'!!!
A 30-minute mini version of the show focuses more closely on game playing and the fabulously hideous
prizes that O’Day insists, “Must be taken home!” if won while the full blown edition incorporates an
assortment of the show’s unique, outrageously funny segments: “Naked Karaoke,” “Presto Change-o!”
(instant makeovers), the dreaded punishment chair, a “literary” selection from “Dick O’Day’s Liberry,” a
musical number or two, and more.
