Everything You Need to Know About Tonight’s Seinfeld/Friends Quiz


WHO: Anyone who is a fan of Seinfeld or Friends.

WHAT: A quiz about two classic sitcoms.

WHEN: Tonight! Doors at 5:30, show starts at 7.

WHERE: World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut Street.

WHY: Because these are the very best quizzes done in Philadelphia. Seriously, this is on a whole different level than anything anyone else is doing…video rounds, live performances between rounds, an incredible venue. It’s simply a whole different level of quiz.

HOW: You can either buy tickets here or at the door. They are $10 (cheap!) and that allows me to get three of the funniest comedians in Philadelphia to perform between rounds, hire a video editor, etc. Trust me, it’s worth it. This is a great show.

WHAT SIZE ARE TEAMS? 2-8 people each.

HOW LONG WILL IT GO: It will be from 7 until around 9:15 or 9:30.

ARE THERE PRIZES? Yes, some awesome prizes, including those found below.  I have a feeling “Best team name” at this thing tonight is going to be epic.


WHO’S PERFORMING BETWEEN ROUNDS? Three of Philly’s Funniest comedians:

Brandon Vincent Jackson

Chip Chantry

Jake Mattera

WHAT AM I WAITING FOR? I don’t know! Just come out! It’s going to be a hell of a lot of fun!


The Philly Blunt Crew Sits Down With Best Selling Author Jennifer Weiner

We recently sat down with New York Times best selling author Jennifer Weiner. She was a hell of a lot of fun to talk to. She’s hilarious, engaging, and certainly not scared to speak her mind. You can check out her interview here. And be sure to follow us on Facebook, twitter, and instagram.

Three of Philly’s Funniest Comedians to Perform at Seinfeld vs Friends Quiz


Our first World Cafe Live VS. quiz was Office vs Parks and Rec, and we had a Scrantonicity cover band (get it?). Our second one was Game of Thrones vs Lord of the Rings, and we had an awesome burlesque troupe doing Game of Thrones burlesque (it was awesome). Our 3rd quiz is June 11th, and I’ve lined up three of the funniest comedians in Philadelphia: Chip Chantry (recently had the #1 comedy album on tunes), Jake Mattera (two time finalist in Philly’s Funniest), and Brandon Vincent Jackson (2016 Runner up in Philly’s Funniest). Seriously, this is an All-Star lineup, and that’s IN ADDITION to what promises to be a great quiz in an awesome venue. And all for only $10 a pop.

For those who haven’t yet attended, these quizzes are Quizzo Bowl quality, complete with video rounds, fun prizes, the works. So if you are a fan of great quizzes and terrific comedy, make sure you get a squad together next Tuesday night! You can RSVP and get tickets here.

Question of the Week

Question of the Week

Let’s Say Goodbye to the Trocadero…With Pee Wee Herman and the Wheel of Terrific


As you know, the Trocadero is closing. The vaunted music hall holds special memories for tens of thousands of people in the area from the ages of 3-103, myself included. I saw an incredible Public Enemy show there, I saw the Great Nippleini have a ghastly accident there, I emceed a Neil Diamond cover band show there. But for me and Chip Chantry, some of our career highlights and lowlights took place in that building over the 2+ years we hosted Movie Mondays, from 2004-2006. They had initially hired me to host a quiz there for the movies, and if I had done that, the run probably would have been more successful. But I knew about the Troc’s vaudeville history, and I wanted to be a small part of it. So each week, Chip and I would come up with games for a ridiculous game show called the Wheel of Terrific. The games would have some sort of tie in to the movie playing…so for instance for Office Space we had a game called “Die Muthafucka Die” which was little more than a contestant smashing an old printer to pieces with a golf club. Some weeks the crowd roared in approval. Other weeks, Philly hipsters stared at us with dull, vacant looks. And after a two year run, the gig was up.

But I ran into long time Troc owner Joanna Pang at her new venture, Chatayee Thai at 1227 Walnut (great food!) a couple of weeks ago. She talked about how painful it had been to close a Philadelphia institution, and how much the music game has changed in recent years. Then we started talking about the old Movie Mondays and how much fun it was.  She told me that she was still playing out the string there with a few more Movie Mondays. I said, “Wouldn’t it be cool if Chip and I did our show one last time?” and she said, “Sure, go for it. What movie would you want to do?” There was only one correct answer to that question…those of you who know me know I’m a huge Pee Wee Herman fan. So I reached out to Chip to see if he was down. He was. And so, on Monday June 3rd, we’ll meet at the Troc one last time, we’ll do a ridiculous vaudeville show , and then we’ll watch one of the funniest movies ever produced…which also happens to be the very first movie we ever did for Movie Monday. If you’re a fan of the Troc, and want to enjoy one last show there, we hope you’ll join us. Info can be found here.
