The Big OSCARS Quiz Thing Game Show

The Onion – “Way more than a middlebrow excuse to drink beer.”

The New Yorker – “A great place to train for Jeopardy! while laughing it up with strangers.”

The Huffington Post – “The best regular trivia competition that Manhattan has to offer.”

For more than 15 years, The Big Quiz Thing—as seen on the official TV quiz show of New York City—has been NYC’s premier provider of live trivia entertainment for corporate and private events, in addition to public quiz-show spectaculars. And in 2018, the BQT presents the sixth edition of one of its most popular annual events: The Big Oscars Quiz Thing. The Lower East Side’s new HQ for A-list brainy entertainment, Caveat, hosts the multimedia team trivia excitement, dealing with all things Academy Awards and led by Quizmaster Andy Peeke. And stick around after the quiz for a complete screening of the Oscars ceremony on Caveat’s big screens.

Since 2002, The Big Quiz Thing—way more than a bar trivia night—has presented the ultimate live trivia game-show experience, producing the very finest in private and corporate quiz entertainment from coast to coast. Multimedia puzzles, the Buzzertastic Finale, Smart-Ass Points for funny wrong answers, professional hosting, supreme prizes, a unique digital answer system—and the most entertaining “figureoutable” quiz questions anywhere—The Big Quiz Thing has earned a national reputation as a next-level trivia experience.
