Continuing Geeks Who Drink month on the road to Geek Bowl IX is Quizmaster Johnny! You’ve heard from the players, now hear from one of the many who work every night of the week (except for basically Friday – because, y’know, bars don’t really need help getting traffic on Fridays) bringing you the geekiest, drinkiest quiz around. Quizmaster Johnny, also known in the universe of Geeks Who Drink as “Cousin Chet”, has been hosting quiz for nearly 7 years, and his insights into this empire are remarkable.
We talk about his first quiz, what his prep is like, why he’s still a bundle of nerves before quiz even all these years later, and more. Ever thought about being a Geeks Who Drink quizmaster? This is an episode you should listen to before you apply. Never thought about being a Geeks Who Drink quizmaster? That’s fine too. This is an episode you should listen to, too. You’ll find out which overused team names Johnny hates, what references used in team names Johnny’s a sucker for, what his geek obsessions are, why drinking a bucket of Corona isn’t a quizmaster best practice, and a hell of a lot more. You could always just stick around and find out why we both hate “The Walking Dead” TV show.
The episode drops on Wednesday, January 14. You can listen to at the Jon of All Trades homepage, download it on iTunes, or stream it on Stitcher.
This will be the second of 4 episodes highlighting Geeks Who Drink Pub Quizzes. All throughout January, on the road to Geek Bowl IX, I’m highlighting a different aspect of this company. Why? I love geeking out, and I love drinking. I’ve played in 3 Geek Bowls, and if you haven’t gone before, you should go this year. For more information about Geek Bowl IX or to purchase tickets, click here. Why should you go? Take it from the company itself: ” Geek Bowl is a dork bacchanal. Dress to the nines, drink up and enjoy, because we’ll give you one hell of a show.” And even if you don’t go, here’s what’s coming the rest of the month:
