The Will Clark Show feat. P*rno Bingo 2005 - 2014, 2015 was part game show, part variety show and all fundraiser and featured four rounds of Bingo, awesome erotic prizes and gaylebrity guest callers and performers! Plus, there were cheap drinks for cheaper men! The All American Gayme with the All Adult Twist!
Produced by Will Clark, P*rno Bingo began at the 9th Ave. Bistro in New York City on Wednesday February 16th, 2005, continued at Pieces when the Bistro closed in August 2008, moved to The Ritz in April 2012 and finished its run at Uncle Charlies (139 E. 45th Street, between Lexington and Third, NYC).
Throughout its run, The Will Clark Show feat. P*rno Bingo raised over a quarter of a million for over 80 New York based LGBT non-profits.
Charities participated by promoting the night and being on hand to sell Bingo cards. Each charity each week kept 100% of what they raised at the event.
Each week, Will's right hand man, AB took photos which are then posted on this blog. Sponsored by NEXT Magazine, ID Lube as well as various theaters, studios, promotional companies and members of the LGBT community who generously gave of their time and products.
The 457th and Final weekly P*rno Bingo took place on Wednesday, February 26, 2014 in a special celebration of Will's 50th Birthday and over 9 years of weekly shows. The blowout celebration raised $2,000 for one of Will's favorite charities: the Gay/Lesbian Anti Violence Project
In March 2015, Bingo returned for 3 shows celebrating Will's 51st birthday. Finally, in summer 2015, Will produced 10 nights (Wednesdays, June 3 - August 4th, which also coincided with Will's 20th anniversary in the gay XXX industry) as a 'victory lap' celebration of the show that so many had missed.
