You guys will be getting to know Steve aka “Know Contest” a bit better these next few weeks, as he picks up some summer shifts and starts to do some of his own quizzes.
What one album would you want with you on a desert island? The other day, I had a wicked craving to listen to Achtung, Baby three times in a row without interruption, but I like to avoid getting punched, so I’ll say the Police’s Zenyatta Mondatta–unless I discovered the island wasn’t deserted, in which case I’d quickly switch over to Purple Rain.
What is your favorite sea creature? The coelecanth, the horrible-tasting, slow-moving fishosaurus we thought was extinct for 66 million years until one was found just chilling off S. Africa in 1938.
With Carl and I getting slammed with holiday gigs (book yours now!) and with what we expect to be a big Winter Warz season on the horizon, we thought it would be a good idea to add a new member to the team. So we’re happy to add bar and restaurant vet Mike Major to the squad. Wanna play a quiz with Mike? Sign up here.
What’s your pre-COVID profession? I worked at the demonstration kitchen COOK.
List three of your favorite places in Philly. Loaded question but my brain immediately went to food and booze. Bob and Barbara’s, Fountain Porter, and Carribean Feast.
What one album would you want with you on a desert island? The Score from The Fugees.
What reality show would you be an absolutely terrible contestant on? The Bachelor/Bachelorette.
One of the JGT Quizmasters just released a new album, and it’s hilarious. Pick yourself up a copy on itunes! Or you can listen on spotify, which he’ll probably get like .0000001 cents on. Spotify is trash. Anyways, very funny album.
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!
