Award Winning Multimedia Trivia Night THE BIG QUIZ THING Returns to Los Angeles - $200 Grand Prize!
The BIg Quiz Thing's first show of 2012 features video round THE BIPOLAR MOVIE CHALLENGE and audio round MARACA MUSING (A.K.A. ANAGRAM MUSIC), plus prizes from The Moth, Mortified LA, Comic Book Live and more!
The New Yorker - “A great place to train for Jeopardy! while
laughing it up with strangers.”
The Huffington Post - “The best regular trivia competition that
Manhattan has to offer.”
Do you remember a lot about TV series finales? Can you figure out
what Sarah Palin has in common with chocolate-covered toffee? Do
you know what four-letter acronym was popularized by the movie
American Pie? If not, can you make people who do know laugh? If
you answered yes to any of these questions, you belong at The
Big Quiz Thing, the ultimate multimedia live quiz show! In 2012,
the BQT established itself as the city's best trivia night, and
now it continues its residency at Busby’s East Sunday, January
27th, at 8:00pm (doors 7:30pm). Best of all, there's a $200
grand jackpot, plus more fabulous prizes, including tickets to
Mortified L.A. Comic Book Live, The Moth, swag from some of this year’s Oscar-nominated films, gift certificates and more!
Hosted in L.A. by ace quizmaster Daniel Halden, The Big Quiz
Thing—more than a bar trivia night—has been a New York sensation
since 2002 and has brought its live quiz experience to Boston,
Philadelphia, D.C., Chicago, and beyond. Video and audio puzzles,
the lightning round, “the Three-Way Finale”—and the smartest,
most entertaining “figureoutable”
Quiz Thing is the event that no self-respecting geek can afford
to miss! Perhaps literally: The winning team takes home the $200
grand prize, along with the glory of knowing they possess more
useless knowledge than anyone else in L.A. Plus, tons of other
prizes: tickets to some of L.A. top live events (theater, comedy,
sports, and more), restaurant gift cards, and various other swag—
courtesy the BQT’s A-list prize partners.
And even if you aren’t a nerdy brainiac, there’s hope: If your
wrong answer solicits a smile from the quizmaster and his team,
if it makes the audience laugh, it’s counted correct: You earn a
Smart-Ass Point. Everyone gets to play, everyone laughs!
In a culture of bite-size information and prepackaged wisdom,
nothing is nobler than a live quiz show, and in the world of live
trivia, absolutely nothing is better than The Big Quiz Thing.
The Big Quiz Thing is at Busby’s East, 5364 Wilshire Blvd (near
La Brea), Sunday, January 27. Starting in February, it’s the
third Sunday of every months: February 17 (our OSCAR themed show!
), March 17, April 22, etc. Doors 7pm, show 7:30pm. Admission is
a mere $10, and there is a $200 cash grand prize. For more info,
