Chopper’s F**kin Bingo Starring Heath Franklin as Chopper
Bingo had better watch its balls because it’s got a new host - Chopper!
He’s decided to shake up the rules and give the blue rinse set something to worry about, and at the same time show those Melbourne comics how to win over an audience - with a short temper and a big f**king gun.
Star of Network 10’s The Ronnie Johns Half Hour, and international comedy tours Chopper’s Harden the F*ck Up Australia (2007) and Make Deadsh*ts History (2008), Logie-nominated comedian Heath Franklin returns to Melbourne with his critically-acclaimed character ‘Chopper’ in his sell-out comedy bingo show of the 2007-08 Adelaide Fringe, 2006-07 Sydney Big Laugh and 2006-08 Melbourne Comedy Festivals for THREE shows only.
Now it’s not the type of bingo that Grandma plays – there’s a bit of swearing, a bit of violence and somebody may get shot, but other than that, it’s a street fighter with 17 unofficial kills calling numbers, refereeing physical challenges, and audience members winning a swag of prizes.
Chopper will also be joined on stage by his barrel girl, and drug addict niece, Jenny (Felicity Ward), and parole officer, and keyboardist, Sammy J.
From beef sausage nun chukka fights to cutting the ears of drug mule piñatas, this is anarchic, physical and improvised comedy at its best. So come, play, you might even win Chopper’s ‘special’ meat tray.
Heath Franklin will also be performing in Chopper: Live at Pentridge
