RANDOM DRAW CLOSED
The Blame Game

BBC Northern Ireland

The Blame Game returns!

The Blame Game remains one of our most popular BBC recordings in Northern Ireland… and it’s coming back to local television and radio.

Our regular panellists - Tim McGarry, Colin Murphy, Jake O’Kane and Neil Delamere - will be casting a satirical eye over what’s been going wrong with the world and telling us who is to blame. And they will be joined by visiting comedians with their own take on people and events in the news.

You can expect topical and sometimes edgy humour that pushes boundaries, challenges authority and makes life seem a little brighter. 

We know that there’s always a high level of demand for Blame Game tickets. These will be restricted to two per applicant.

Tickets will be allocated by random draw.

You can register at any time until 10pm on Wednesday 23 October.

In order to maximise the opportunity for as many different people as possible to attend, successful applicants will only be allocated tickets for one show in this series.

Good luck!

The Blame Game is a Moondog Production for BBC Northern Ireland.

Tickets are strictly non-transferable. Photographic proof of ID must be shown. If you cannot provide this proof you will be refused entry. If your photo ID does not match the name on the ticket you will not be admitted. If you request two tickets because you are taking a guest along, that person will only be allowed in if they are accompanied by you.

Please take a look at our FAQ to see what type of photo ID is acceptable.

Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that as not everyone who asks for tickets uses them, to make sure we have a full house we send out more tickets than there are places. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people so please arrive early.
