Mariam T
Sunday Bingo Brunch

Mariam T, San Diego’s crankiest drag queen and self proclaimed sass-hole, is happy to be hosting bingo brunch for Big Bear ROMP 2018 weekend! She’s a notorious show hostess and stand up comedian and you can catch her shaking her ass for a dollar and publicly berating people at Urban Mo’s, #1 Fifth Avenue, Fiesta Cantina and Lips! With her big hair, bad attitude, and love for quiche florentine, she’s sure to make this bitchy bingo brunch more outrageous than ever before.   Make sure to buy your bingo cards B-4 they sell out!

Phil Lisotta
Phil’s Trivia


FIL TRI-vee-uh.  Back again by popular demand, he’s actually crazy enough to return to Big Bear ROMP with MORE trivia. When Phil isn’t harassing old ladies or chasing woodland creatures, he spends his free time sunbathing in the nude with cleverly-placed bathtub decals, and occasionally taunting audiences with creative trivia and witty banter.  Join him on Saturday afternoon at the host hotel for an entertaining and hilarious trivia experience you’ll have nightmares about.
