The Big Quiz Thing, New York’s greatest live trivia experience, returns to Le Poisson Rouge for the first ever Big Emmys Quiz Thing! In the tradition of the annual sold-out Oscars event, the BQT presents a pre-awards-ceremony live game show—a multimedia team-trivia contest on all things television. Everyone gets to play for tremendous fun, not to mention glamorous prizes from the BQT’s panoply of A-list trivia prize partners. Then, catch all of the red-carpet and gold-statue excitement on LPR’s big screens, with the BQT’s Quizmaster EdP wandering the crowd during commercials to further test your knowledge (with more prizes at stake). All for the low price of $15 (advance $10). Sunday, September 20; preshow quiz at 6pm, red-carpet action begins at 7:30pm.

The Big Quiz Thing
The Big Quiz Thing official site
Basically, a multimedia live trivia game show. All the fun of Jeopardy!, except that you get to play! And hang out with your friends! And laugh! Geeks and cool kids alike gather in teams to test their knowledge on the best trivia content in the business—from pop culture, music, history and sports to the completely indefinable—with excellent prizes and eternal glory at stake. We play in multiple rounds, with the quiz-master reading the questions and displaying them on the big screen; you collaborate as a team and write down your answers on your Big Quiz Thing Answer Pad. (Nobody shouts out anything, nobody has to be dragged onstage and embarrassed.) It all culminates in the Lightning Round, followed by the big Three-Way Finale. Between rounds, we take quick breaks to add up the scores and let you drink, socialize and strategize.
