Meet the Quizmaster: Blake Wexler

Excited to start a new quizmaster this week. Blake Wexler is a very funny comedian from Philly who is now based in LA. I know that my comedian buddies aren’t getting a ton of work these days, and that they make for terrific quizmasters. So I reached out to Blake and was thrilled when he said yes, because I knew that people would think their quiz was being hosted by Penn Badgley from the Netflix show YOU (see below). Blake joins the team this week, and does have some availability if anybody is looking to play!
