ANSWER ME - Sunday Jan 11th

Come see local comedians do what they do best: competing in pop culture trivia. In the traditional panel quiz format, two teams of two comedians will answer trivia questions and compete in ridiculous challenges for arbitrary points and useless prizes. They will be joined by… YOU! Every round, two randomly selected audience members will join the comedians in the hopes of pulling a prize out of the Outdated Media Barrel. Could you be selected? You’ll find out when you ANSWER ME!

Our panelists for the January show:
Matt Gubser
Richard Toomer
DJ Real
Imran G

Featuring Natasha Muse

Hosted by Jacob Rubin
Produced by Will Scovill

$10
