Although we'd been going for a year and a half at this point, our crowd had started to slide a bit. I also kept running into roadblocks from performers and charities about the name of the event. It was frustrating. On one hand, I knew that 'sex sells' but on the other hand, getting a variety of porn stars to commit to showing up had been (and would continue to be throughout the run) challenging.
So we started a new era in the Bingo run - Planet Bingo. It sort of didn't really fit and ultimately I changed it back to Porno Bingo three short months later, but it did leave a permanent mark on the event in that we routinely had musical guests rather than just once in awhile.
Cabaret performer Richard Skipper does an amazing Carol Channing and joined us one evening. It was quite spectacular and memorable. Thanks, Richard!
