Congratulations, Pat! TrivWorks “Special Host” Pat Kiernan to Co-Host CNBC Primetime Reality Show “Crowd Rules”Thursday, April 4th, 2013
It’s an exciting day today as CNBC announces a new primetime reality competition series, “Crowd Rules,” co-hosted by TrivWorks friend & “Special Host” Pat Kiernan!
Presented by Embassy Row and Executive produced by Michael Davies, “Crowd Rules” will feature Pat, co-host Kendra Scott and a special industry expert as they welcome 3 small businesses a week in front of a live studio audience of 97, to help them decide which contestant they shall vote for to win a $50,000 prize.
Pat, a veteran game show host, is no stranger to national television, having hosted VH1′s “The World Series of Pop Culture” for two seasons, and has a strong background in business as well, including being co-host of CNNfn’s “The Money Gang” alongside Ali Velshi. We are so thrilled to see him back in front of a national audience, and look forward to the first episode which airs on April 30th!
There’s a really great article in The Wall Street Journal today on the booming popularity of trivia events in New York City and across the country, and we are so honored and delighted to have been included!
Focusing primarily on the growth of pub quiz nights, the piece also mentions how a select number of companies have taken things a step further, to service a corporate audience: “TrivWorks customizes trivia events for corporate team-building, some featuring NY1′s Pat Kiernan…” Speaking about how our public trivia nights draw upwards of 300 people, Pat also provides a great quote in the article on what it is that keeps people coming back to a great trivia night: namely, hitting that perfect “sweet spot” with questions that are highly appropriate for the audience- not too easy, but not too hard (Pat also offers his own analysis of this piece via his Website PatsPapers.com).
Prizes Announced for Pat Kiernan’s “90s vs 00s” Trivia Night – Grand Prize: NKOTB with Special Guests 98 Degrees & Boyz II Men!Wednesday, March 13th, 2013
We are exactly one week away from Pat Kiernan’s “90s vs 00s” Pop Culture Trivia Challenge on March 20th at The Bell House, and are ready to announce our prizes – starting with our theme-appropriate Grand Prize: tickets for the ENTIRE winning team to see The Package Tour: New Kids on the Block with Special Guests 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men at the Barclays Center!
Keeping with our 90s & 2000′s theme, Pat will also be giving away the following throughout the evening:
ANN on Broadway – “Tough as nails, funny as hell!” Take a riveting journey into the life and times of Ann Richards, the legendary Texas Governor who was unseated by George W. Bush in 1995. “A ticket tape parade of chicken-fried wisecracks” declares the NYT!
VANYA and SONIA and MASHA and SPIKE on Broadway - Coming to Broadway on the heels of smash reviews, this new comedy stars Sigourney Weaver and David Hyde Pierce, two of the most influential recognizable actors of the 90s/00s! Bring your Kleenex, because this is a funny one – you’ll make your eyes water from laughing!
SILENCE! The Musical - The unauthorized off-Broadway musical parody of 90s thriller “The Silence of the Lambs” is in such demand that it recently extended its run. We’ve partnered with them for other 90s-themed events, and it’s one of our best-received prizes – you will love it!
Sex and the City Tour - Presented by our great friends On Location Tours (OLT), hop on a coach bus and travel in the footsteps (heelsteps?) of Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha to the Manhattan hotspots they made famous on SATC!
Sopranos Sites Tour - Another highly unique tour by OLT, the bus picks you up in Manhattan for a guided tour of the actual sites from one of the most popular and influential TV shows of the 90s/00s!
Julia Sweeney in Conversation with Judy Gold at 92Y - We couldn’t resist! Known for SNL’s “It’s Pat!”, one of the funniest pop culture characters of the 90s, this is the perfect prize for a Pat Kiernan trivia night. She’ll be engaging in lively conversation with Judy Gold, Emmy Award-winning comedic writer and producer of “The Rosie O’Donnell Show,” which ran – you guessed it – from the 90s through the 2000s.
“NYC 1993″ at The New Museum – This highly anticipated new exhibit aims to demonstrate just how much of our lives today have been shaped by the pop culture phenomena of that one single year in the 90s.
Daly Pie - We can all agree that whether it’s the 90s, 2000s or today, everybody loves pie. In addition to once again selling her delicious hand pies throughout the event, Brooklyn-based pie maven Meghan Daly will be awarding an entire pie for one lucky participant to take home!
There will be plenty of other fun prizes given out throughout the event, and we are delighted to have comedienne Ophira Eisenberg perform as an opening act! It’s going to be a fantastic night – get ready!
