Bonus Stage: A Live Video Game Talk Show!

In the spirit of Conan or The Daily Show, “Bonus Stage” is a monthly live talk show just for gamers. Host Carlo Ritchie (The Bear Pack) and Ben O’Brien (Big Head Mode) will be joined on stage at the Chaser’s Giant Dwarf Theatre by a variety of special guests from the world of comedy, television and most importantly, video games to ridicule, probe and play some of the best (and worst) games of the last 30 years.

Running at 80 minutes, ‘Bonus Stage’ will feature a variety of segments, including live gaming, interviews, social commentary, news segments, reviews, sketches, machinima and stand up. Keeping things on track, our house band ‘The Triforce’, led by Benny Davis (The Axis of Awesome) will play a host of favourite game tunes, old and new, as they’ve never been heard before.

And after the curtain falls, the games keep going. We’ll have a collection of classic Nintendo games, board games and cards for the audience to enjoy alongside a few drinks, while Benny and Triforce keep the music going.
