“Bingo Loco has become nothing short of an entertainment phenomenon in its birth place of Dublin and beyond.” – Lonely Planet.

Bingo Loco is not a performance, it’s an engaging experience with the mentality of a theatre show, while always ensuring every element is completely ridiculous.

In 2020, Bingo Loco is partnering with Make-A-Wish® Australia to help create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Each
year, thousands of Australian children are diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Wishes complement medical treatment – working to calm, distract and empower sick kids at the time they need it most. When a wish is realised, a child discovers that despite their situation, anything is possible.

Turns out testosterone filled comedy isn't what you thought!

Welcome to Beast, a stand-up show by the transgender, trans-national, performance artist turned comedian, Krishna Istha.

Directed by Zoe Coombs Marr (Best Show Melbourne Comedy Festival 2016, Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee 2016), Beast throws a refreshingly daft non-sense bomb at the binary everything.

Super smart politics meets some really silly props as Krishna dares themselves to some (pretty bent) straight talk at the stand-up mic: babysitting the woke way, is this McDonald's or Grindr?, and don't get them started on the toilets. Plus, the shocking truth behind the question: "What's in the bum bag!?"
