Christian Finnegan Teams Up with TrivWorks™ as “Special Host”
Veteran Stand-Up Comedian Partners with Professional Trivia Company to Offer Unique Corporate Entertainment & Team Building Experience
October 23, 2014 – New York, NY – Christian Finnegan, veteran stand-up comedian and longtime fixture on Comedy Central and VH1, has partnered with TrivWorks™, a professional trivia event production company based in Brooklyn, to create live trivia entertainment, team building and brand engagement activities for corporate groups in New York City and beyond.
In his role as a TrivWorks™ “Special Host,” Mr. Finnegan will combine comedy with competition to offer corporate audiences a fun and unique new form of group entertainment, built around a raucous, fully-customized trivia contest. Featuring a combination of full-room and 1-on-1 trivia questions with built-in socialization/networking opportunities in between, Mr. Finnegan will bring his enormous comedic talent and experience to bear by hosting an engaging, high-energy trivia contest, allowing diverse groups to know each other better through a fun and memorable shared experience.
A familiar face to television and comedy club audiences nationwide, Mr. Finnegan was one of the original panelists on VH1’s Best Week Ever, and currently appears on the network’s program I Love the 2000’s. He is also known to Chappelle’s Show fans as Chad, the only white roommate in the infamous “Mad Real World” sketch. A regular presence on Comedy Central for over a decade, he starred in his own half-hour special Premium Blend, a one-hour stand up special Au Contraire, and Comedy Central Presents: Christian Finnegan. In April 2014, his latest one-hour standup special The Fun Part was released on Netflix.

“For me, joining forces with TrivWorks™ is a no-brainer,” says Finnegan, a longtime trivia enthusiast. “Finally, all of those hours spent memorizing the names of hair metal bass players and lyrics to snack food jingles will come in handy! I see this as a giant step forward in my mission to make life more trivial.”
