According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the heaviest pumpkin ever grown was grown by Mathias Willemijns. How much did it weigh in pounds (not in kilograms. Be careful when you look it up)?
Believe it or not, we’re in YEAR 15 of the oldest tradition in the JGT arsenal: the annual Halloween Spooktacular. All questions about demons and goblins and ghouls. Also skeletons. And death. And mayhem. OK, OK, you know what Halloween is, you get the picture. Anyways, gonna be a fun time as always, with lots of candy to giveaway and of course anyone who dresses up earns their team 3 points in the JGTAI (up to 15 points per team). Here’s this week’s schedule:
O’Neals 8 pm
Sidecar 8 pm
Locust Rendezvous 6:15 pm
Founding Fathers 8:30 pm
Industry 6:30 pm
Birra 8 pm
Bards 9:15 pm
Here ya go, our updated scores! Shout out to There’s No I in… who earned 8 points for being the only team to attend my comedy show. AHEM. (cough). AHEM. The NEXT one is November 20th and I would HATE for the rest of you to miss it.
There are still four weeks left to earn points, so if you’re not in the green, you soon can be: there’s a brand new Facebook picture challenge. It’ll be fun to see pics of you guys in the 90s.
Still working on a venue for the big event, but I’ve got a real promising lead for something I think is going to be Ultra-Fun. I hope to announce it on Monday.
Action starts tonight at Locust Rendezvous at 6:15, as usual. But due to the Sixers season opener, we’re going to push the Founding Fathers quiz back to 9:15 p.m. Might also be a bit hectic with seating. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up to be patient as we make the switchover. See ya tonight!
What company based in Los Angeles was known for it’s EXTREMELY baggy jeans in the late 90s?
It’s all 90s questions, all the time at quizzo this week. Action starts at O’Neals and Sidecar at 8 p.m. On to City Tap House at 10:15. 2 for $20 pizzas. Hope to see ya tonight!

If you would like to hear one of Philly’s most brilliant minds talk about mankind’s 4.5 billion year plan to leave the solar system before the sun blows up, if you want to hear about Johnny’s Little League baseball team (literally the worst one ever assembled in sports history), and if you’d like to hear Philly best rapper try to rhyme over Yacht Rock beats, then DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW. Monday at 9 p.m. at Good Good Comedy Theatre. $5 a ticket, and it’s BYO, so feel free to bring booze.
We debuted it last month, and had a ton of fun. An entire crowd clapping and singing along to “Crackhead” by Kenn Kweder was pure magic (above), and Chip and my discussion of an actual riot at one of our shows went quite well.
This month, we’ll talk about another disastrous show we did a while back, we’ll have another crowd sing-a-long, and we’ll work in a bit of trivia. If you are free Monday night, want to be part of something really fun, and want to support local comedy, come check us out.
Hey gang, just a heads up about tonight’s quizzes:
Quiz at the Industry at 6:30 is a 100% go. $3 beers, great happy hour specials until 7, terrific food, Name That Tune, and a GREAT opportunity to get a win. Totally wide open.
On to Birra at 8. As of now, we’re on, but with the Birds game coming on, we’ll play it by ear. If we get a decent crowd out for the quiz, we’ll do it. If not, we’ll come back next week. Bards at 9:15 is also a GO for tonight. Hard to know what to expect. If it’s a rabid Eagles following that will lose their shit if they turn off the audio, we may can it, but it’s not a huge sports bar so I think it will be OK. Either way, if you’re looking for GUARANTEED action tonight, I’d go with the Industry.
As for the shirt above, before there were the Eagles, there were the Frankford Yellow Jackets. Philly’s first NFL team played in the Northeast and actually won the 1926 NFL title. If you’re interested in the shirt, click here, and as always, you get free shipping with the checkout code “Quizzo”.
October 10th is Thelonious Monk’s 100th birthday. What studio album did he release in 1963 which featured the songs Tea for Two and Don’t Blame Me?
Here ya go, the latest JGTAI scores. The Invitational will take place on November 19th, so still plenty of time to make a move but I would certainly get your team out next week. You can also score points on the JGT Facebook page. So lots of time to make things happen. As far as places to get a win, City Tap House, Fishtown Brewpub, Industry, and Birra are by far your best bets. None has a dominant team. So get your crew together and make the magic happen. See ya next week!
