Celebrity Bingo, always a perennial mid-winter hit at The University of Findlay, will be the featured “famous celebrity” guest bingo caller, “Pee Wee Herman,” at 7 p.m. Saturday, January 9 in the Alumni Memorial Union’s Multipurpose Room.
Admission will cost $5 at the door, but will be free for those with a valid UF I.D. The event is rated PG-13; no children under age 13 will be admitted.
Pee Wee Herman will be played by Lynn Frey, who studied and graduated from Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Clown College. He worked as a mime at Florida’s Sea World for 26 years. Tired of the mime life, Frey retired and then stared in the movie, “Just About Famous” and has been the production manager for the Sunburst Convention of Celebrity Impersonators for the last 11 years. He plays a variety of other characters, such as Howard Stern, Ed Norton, Stan Laurel and Skeeter Sweeney in the Sweeny Family Band. He also plays the penny whistle, bass, banjo, flute, fife, bagpipes, mandolin and guitar in his own “pirate band.”
In addition to playing BINGO (there will be prizes) and being entertained by “Pee Wee Herman,” participants will have the opportunity to enjoy light refreshments.
All are invited to stick around after the show for pictures and to meet “Pee Wee.”
Celebrity Bingo Night is presented by The University of Findlay’s Campus Program Board, a student-led group that strives to bring high-quality, diverse entertainment to campus. Call (419) 434-4606 for more information.
