While I have years of experience of gigs, festivals, and presenting at and chairing industry conferences, it had never occurred to become a pub quiz host – until I encountered SpeedQuizzing!
It happened by accident when a regular SpeedQuizzing event started up at my local (see the photo). I began as a player, stood in for a few weeks when the landlord was unwell, and now it's a regular gig.
I love the pace, the interactivity, the sound effects, the tension, the repartee – and so do all the teams. And I'll even throw in a bit of stand-up at the start to warm things when the mood takes me.
I already had all the equipment needed except the dedicated router, which I'm delighted with. It all seems to work – seamlessly.
I'm based in Brighton but prepared to travel a fair way for the right gig.
Hope to see you soon! Alex . . . PS: By the way, not all the drinks in the photo are mine!
