The Big Quiz Thing - The Live Game Show Spectacular

The first Thursday of every month, 8pm; only $10!

THE ULTIMATE MULTIMEDIA QUIZ SHOW COMES TO CHICAGO AT LAST, WITH A $200 GRAND PRIZE & OTHER FABULOUS GOODIES!

The Onion - “Way more than a middlebrow excuse to drink beer.”
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 finales? Can you puzzle 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 quiz show! A live entertainment sensation nationwide for ten years (in New York, L.A., Boston, Philadelphia, D.C., and elsewhere), the BQT finally comes to Chicago, every first Thursday of the month starting October 4 at Uncommon Ground in Edgewater. Best of all, there's a $200 grand jackpot, plus more fabulous prizes.

Hosted in Chicago by Quizmistress Katie Vagnino, The Big Quiz Thing is much more than a bar trivia night. Video and audio puzzles, the Lightning Round, the Three-Way Finale—and the most entertaining “figureoutable” quiz questions anywhere—The Big 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 Chicago. Plus, tickets to theater, comedy, sports and more, restaurant gift cards, and 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 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.
