Hangin’ out for more Trivia

By Disposable - 18 November 2008 23

Hey Guys.

I was hoping somebody might be able to help my partner and I find some more trivia nights in Canberra?

We already go to the fabulous Trivia in the Trams at the Dickson Tradies on Monday nights and would like to find a few more regular nights to attend.

Go easy on me, I’m a newbie.

What’s Your opinion?

Yep, Overhead does run a good trivia night. There’s a decent trivia down at Southern Cross Club in Tuggeranong – but the questions are off the shelf.

Thursday evening at Olims.

Overheard said :

And did you know that ‘Show me the money’ is a catch-cry from that famous Tom Cruise film: “Eddy McGuire’?

Okay, that’s it, Overheard! Shut up!! Just shut up I tell you! How embarrassment!

*chuckle*

Wednesday nights @ Italio-Australian Club Forrest and Thursday nights @ McKellar Wests – both serve meals if you like to eat dinner while exercising your brain and I think both start around the 7pm mark.

I’ve been to most of them – unforunately none are particularly good. The “comedy” trivia concept at the Mawson has always intruigued me though. Maybe I’ve gotten Anthony on a bad night but I’m yet to witness the “comedy” componenet of the night.

It’s probably bad karma to cast nasturtiums on others in the trade, but on the one of these nights I attended, my group also struggled to identify the ‘comedy’ element. There wasn’t much to laugh at, just the sound of crickets between questions and we left in the first break.

We have a lot of fun on Mondays in the Trams, but that’s mostly from tapping into the creativity and ingenuity of the audience. It will be a long time before I get the scenes from last night of those heavy metal air guitar performances out of my head! And did you know that ‘Show me the money’ is a catch-cry from that famous Tom Cruise film: “Eddy McGuire’?

Next week from 7pm-ish for anyone who wants to join in. Special subject (groan): Impersonations.

Turner Bowls trivia finished a few months back when Wests went belly up. I think Sthn Cross are going to restart it in the new year.

Tony Delroy does one every night, Monday-Friday. Free entry, starts just after midnight on local ABC radio. :p

PM 11:15 am 18 Nov 08

Pot Belly Trivia – tonight and every Tuesday night.

Comedy trivia with Anthony Ackroyd at the Mawson Club, thursdays from 8ish.

Note that the trivia questions are not *about* comedy, it’s just that they’re delivered in Mr Ackroyd’s inimitable comedic style. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Granny 10:55 am 18 Nov 08

Sorry, Disposable, but you won’t find Trivia like Overheard does it anywhere!

*chuckle*

A friend of mine swears that the trivia night at the Queanbeyan Leagues Club [7:30pm every Tuesday night] is worth the trip.

PJ O’Reilleys on Wednesday nights. Turner Bowls used to do it on Thursdays, not sure if they still do.
