A Crowd Pleasing Quizzo Bowl 2

The only thing as hot as Nate Wiley and the Crowd Pleasers at the World Cafe live on Sunday night was Where’s You Ten Points Now( aka Where’s Johnny, below), who got the first 47 questions correct in Quizzo Bowl 2 on their way to a second consecutive Quizzo Bowl victory. The team, who had been featured in a recent City Paper article, came in talking smack, and then completely backed it up, missing only the final question of regulation. Had they answered the 48th question correctly, they would have become only the second team in Johnny Goodtimes quizzo history to record a perfect score in a quizzo game. The only team to do so, The Sofa Kingdom, had come into last night’s match up with high hopes, and were visibly shaken by their fourth place finish. The Kingdom won Beat the Champs in August fair and square, not even needing the ten point buffer.

The Cracked Eggheads (below) were one of only four teams to answer the final question correctly and the ten pointer thrusted them into second place. Who’s Your Daddy (aka The Jams) could have actually pulled off the comeback victory had they gotten that question correct. They finished in third.

But the evening was about more than just questions and answers. The night began with the Philadelphia Bluegrass Band, who sounded terrific. It continued with Johnny coming out of retirement (for one night only!) to rap, audaciously sampling a Biggie Smalls beat to lay down, “I Love It When You Call Me Quiz Poppa.” Then, following Round One, came what was for many the highlight of the evening. I’m not exactly a music afficianardo, but I’ve heard my fair share of live tunes, and I have yet to find conclusive proof that there is a better band in Philadelphia than Nate Wiley and the Crowd Pleasers. Their smooth soul sounds rocked the World Cafe Live throughout the evening. At halftime, Norm Klar appeared on stage, and did his unique and hilarious “Magic Show” which was distinctive for it’s lack of successful magic tricks. The lovely Ginger assisted in prize giveaways and judging throughout the evening. Finally, I wanna give a shout out to local comedian Chip Chantry and my mom, who were the other two judges. All in all, I had a blast last night. I hope you guys did as well.
