Quizzo Bowl X

Media Title

A local Quizzo host since 2002, Johnny Goodtimes has sort of taken the art of asking drunk trivia questions to new levels. This weekend, he’s hosting his infamous Quizzo party in the Delaware River on The Spirit of Philadelphia cruiser, with two key features: an admission fee that includes the price of food and a ride to the ship via UBER.

PW: So, Quizzo on a boat. Why?
JOHNNY GOODTIMES: When I did the first one of these 10 years ago, nothing like this had ever been done in America. In the years since, there’ve been similar events in Detroit and Austin and other cities, so it was time to step my game up. For the 10th, I wanted to capture the spirit of the first and do something nobody had done before.

What sorts of shenanigans have gone on at past Quizzo Bowls?
We’ve had celebrity rounds where I’ve had Mayor Nutter and Marc Summers ask questions. A couple got engaged on stage. We’ve had breakdancers, contortionists, magicians, Hall and Oates cover bands, a hair metal singer serenade my mom. Pretty much non-stop insanity.

Any trivia-related reason TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb is playing, or just ‘cause they rock?
TJ Kong has informed me his group was the house band for the short-lived game show Tic-Tac-Dough in the early 1980s. And though I think he’s lying, on the off chance that he’s not, I thought it was important I get a band that has game show experience. Oh, and I also hired them because they kick complete and total ass. // RANDY LOBASSO
