Alehouse Quiz Round 2

Alehouse Quiz Round 2

This is the second quiz round I wrote for the Alehouse quiz I came up with. For this round I decided to go for a quote round which can go well, but also bomb depending on your audience. For this one I tried to get some pop culture and a range of things people would know about, it is a slightly more difficult quiz for the average audience I take it to. I would say if you can manage a 3 out of 5 for this round then that would be a good score.

Question 1: In 1994 in this long running TV show’s 6th series, who came out with the immortal phrase “Me fail English? That’s unpossible.”?
Ralph Wiggum (The Simpsons)

Question 2: Who interrupted Taylor Swift at the 2009 Video Music Awards with the following “Yo, Taylor, I’m really happy for you, I’ma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time! One of the best videos of all time!”
Kanye West

Question 3: In a 2016 TV interview, this person was faced with an interviewer who questioned their ability to be humble, so they replied with “I think I am actually humble. I think I’m much more humble than you would understand.”
Donald Trump (60 Minutes TV Interview)

Question 4: On the panel show Mock the Week who said “Nobody thought Mel Gibson could play a Scot but look at him now! An Alcoholic racist!”
Frankie Boyle

Question 5: In 2006 which country failed to win the Eurovision Song Contest with a song which almost entirely comprised of the lyrics “We are the winners of Eurovision”
Lithuania – (LT United, We are the Winners)

As an early quiz, I haven’t got any sources for this round. But your search engine of choice should find one for you. I have to say that for question 3 I would be tempted to change the quote, but at the time I wrote this round that quote was considered a bit mad. How things move on…

British Comedy Quiz Round 2

British Comedy Quiz Round 2

This is the second round of my British Comedy quiz focusing on Panel Shows. British comedy has a multitude of panel shows to choose from, but for simplicity I kept it relatively simple and stuck to the most popular ones. (Or at least the most popular ones from the clientele of the pub) See how well you do. Just like last time, hover over the blanked out bits for the answers.

8 Out of 10 Cats (Whiskas cat food claim that 8 of out 10 cats prefer Whiskas)

Question 5: Frank Skinner hosts a show where guests can banish their top peeve, annoyance, irritation or worst nightmare, but who wrote the novel the show took its name from?

Sorry, again no sources for this round. But I’m sure Google can help you out!
