For the past six years, comedy and trivia fans in Columbus, Ohio have been gathering monthly to laugh and win prizes at their favorite local game show, The Quiz Box, and now, for the first time ever, the show is hitting the road to Cincinnati.
Co-hosts Erik Tait (as seen on Penn & Teller: Fool Us) and Nickey Winkelman (as seen on Laughs TV) along with podcast producer Kevin Hendrix (as seen on Jeopardy!) are bringing THE QUIZ BOX to Know Theatre of Cincinnati on Saturday, March 28. This Columbus-based podcast and game show has been growing in popularity since its debut in 2014, bringing in local and touring comedians to play a game of impossible trivia to win prizes for audience counterparts.
Each audience member gets a chance to “play,” by receiving a raffle ticket upon entry to the show. The best part is: audience members don’t need to know any trivia at all. The comedian panelists who select raffle tickets from the “Bucket of People” answer ridiculous trivia questions and rack up points, which their audience counterpart gets to cash in later for some outrageous prizes.
Past guests on the show include comedian Michael Malone (Comedy Central, Showtime), Jason Banks (True TV) and Nina West (Ru Paul’s Drag Race).
The March 28 show at Know Theatre will feature Columbus comedian Amber Falter, Cincinnati’s own Kelly Collette, touring juggler and comedian Tony Steinbach, and special guest David Levy of True Theatre.
