Quizzo This Week

autumn-invitational

We enter Week 3 of the JGTAI, where we’ll start to separate the wheat from the chaff. The cream starts rising to the top. A penny saved is a penny earned. Bite the bullet! Break the ice!

Where were we? Oh right, this week at quizzo. Alright, so we’ve got 8 spots on the agenda, and a very good quiz. The Wild Card round will be on Saturn. Here’s a look at the current scene at each bar.

Double Stuffed Oreo has staked a claim as the team to beat at Sidecar. The Jawns and the Dames have been exchanging blows at O’Neals….and remember a $100 gift card if any team can crack 120 points. We were outdoors at City Tap House last week and it was beautiful. Hopefully we can do it again tonight. Had a first time winner at the Locust Rendezvous last week, Hurricane Nancy. Are they a one week wonder or have we added another strong team to an already impressive lineup at the Vous? We’ll soon find out. At Founding Fathers, the toughest team to beat in quizzo, Duane’s World, continues to dominate. If you want to make a name for yourself in the quizzo world, come on out and try to knock these guys off. Looking for a win? Your best bet right now is Industry. Been quiet the past couple of weeks. Birra, meanwhile, has been picking up steam. Nice turnout the past few weeks, which is cool to see. And now that the kids are back in school, the Bards is starting to rock ‘n’ roll. I expect it to be rockin’ this week.

As far as the Invitational, there’s a chance to rack up some points now on Facebook. I’ll have a full, up to date scoreboard up this weekend.

Quizzo at Fightown Hops Tonight

5 Reasons You Should Attend Our Comedy Show Tonight

20818966_1942870755956573_83152571369382822_o

Chip Chantry and I are hosting a comedy/variety show tonight at Good Good Comedy Theatre at 9 p.m. You should be there!

1) It’s going to be a very good show. Chip and I both take pride in putting on a solid show, though we already did most of the legwork: we’ve got two extremely funny comedians for the show and a terrific musical guest. This is gonna be a lot of fun. You’ll also get to hear us talk about the time we did a comedy show in the midst of a riot.

2) Our musical guest is Kenn Kweder, m****r f*****s! As most of you know by now, Chip and I are huge Kweder fans, and we’re psyched out of our minds to have a rock legend with us for the first show. Here’s an interview I did with him a few years ago. Truly a Philly icon.

3) Come see Abby Rosenquist perform. She was the winner of Philly’s Funniest 2017 at Helium, and she is hilarious. We’ll also have the very funny Andrew Orolfo out of San Fran opening the show.

4) Check out the Good Good Comedy Theatre. If you haven’t been here yet, you really should. Started a couple of years ago after founders Aaron Nevins and Kate Banford raised the money via kickstarter, it is a really, really cool place to see a show, and proof that Philly’s underground comedy scene is alive and well. And it’s right in the heart of Chinatown, so you can grab something awesome to eat right before or after the show.

5) Support me, you bastards! What do you think I am, some sort of trivia robot, only existing to rattle off questions to you all the time? You think that’s all I’m capable of? (Smacks you). I’m a man, damnit! With feelings! And other, non trivia-specific skills! (Also, because let’s face it all you care about is trivia, there will be a trivia element to the show.)

Action starts at 9 p.m. at Good Good Comedy Theatre. Hope to see you there!

JGTAI Heads Into Week 2

autumn invitational

Alright gang, the JGTAI is now underway. Quite a bit to report on, so let’s get to it…for those who don’t know who the Invitational works, it’s pretty simple: teams earn points for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishes. They can also earn points via Facebook Challenges. (There’s one up right now: post a pic of you in a football jersey or t-shirt of your favorite team). The top 15 point scorers, at the end of the 10 weeks, earn an invite to the Big Event. We then have a wild card week, where any team that wins earn an automatic invite, though that’s not how I’d recommend making a living. We’ll hold the big event on November 19th. Venue and musical act to be announced in good time. So get your squad together, and come on out…quizzo season is here.
