Details

Ready to be challenged by comedians Jonny Berliner and Simon Watt? The anarcho-nerd pub quiz has moved online.

We would have been having a ton of fun live, but something pandemicy got in the way. Well, you can’t cancel the internet. It’s free, we are just doing this for a laugh but if you like it, feel free to give some money to Crisis. All you need to play along is a solid web connection. 1 ticket per household, but at home you can play as a team or as an individual – we have the technology. Most rounds are pun-based. We are sorry about that.
