    New York’s premier team-trivia event heads to Boston, MA, with a big show at Oberon, Thurs, Jan 28, with a $200 cash prize. “It might save us from the hell that is karaoke,” declared MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann. He was talking about The Big Quiz Thing, New York’s No. 1 live trivia event, packing in 100-plus hipster-nerd acolytes twice a month for geeky-good competition. After seven years of delighting New Yorkers and private clients nationwide, the BQT now brings its multimedia game-show spectacular to Oberon in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with a big $200 grand prize. Quizmaster Noah Tarnow, joined by sidekick-DJ EDP, plus The B-Cuties, presents the ultimate high-tech, video-based test of meaningless information, for the glory of knowing that you possess more useless knowledge than your peers. Highlights include the BQT’s beloved signature games (this edition featuring The Bipolar Movie Challenge and Really, Really, Really Slow Songs), along with the famed Lightning Round, the Three-Way Finale, clever banter, audience smack-talking, and so much more. Plus, fabulous prizes, including $200 in cash, books, DVDs, Big Quiz Thing T-shirts and more. And even when players can’t hazard a guess, there’s hope: If a wrong answer makes the crowd laugh, it’s marked correct and earns a Smart-Ass Point. Everyone plays, everyone laughs. Since 2002, the Big Quiz Thing has established itself as New York's premier source of trivia entertainment. It's entertained in special events and corporate retreats throughout the country, and Quizmaster Noah has hosted stand-up comedy, variety, and burlesque shows all along the East Coast. Trivial times call for trivial trivia, and in a culture ruled by bite-size information and prepackaged wisdom, nothing is nobler than a live quiz show. Come see the event that NYC’s The Village Voice declared “The Best Place to Get in Touch with Your Inner Nerd.” The Big Quiz Thing comes to Oberon, 2 Arrow Street in Harvard Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts, Thursday, January 28 at 8pm Admission is a mere $10, and there is a $200 cash grand prize.
