Summer Happy Hours
“I got it off the telly!”
Start your week off right! Experience our take on beloved British panel shows during our three Monday Summer Happy Hours! Join some of our favorite theater people for a very funny start to the week.
June 17, July 15 and August 5, 5:30-8pm, Fergie’s Pub (1214 Sansom Street), $12 cash cover for fun, one free drink and free appetizers.
June 17 – Would I Lie To You?
Our June Happy Hour features our homage to the hit British television panel show, Would I Lie to You?, a BBC One program hosted by Rob Brydon (recently seen with Steve Coogan in The Trip). Two teams must hoodwink each other into believing that what is fake is true, and what is true is not.
The aim of the game is to fool the opposition into mistaking fact for fiction and fiction for fact. Only those who can think on their feet will survive interrogation from the other team. Click HERE for a clip from the show.
July 15 - Q/I
Happy Hour #2 revs into action with the Inis Nua version of Q/I (Quite Interesting), a freewheeling BBC Two panel show hosted by Stephen Fry.
I will be throwing difficult questions at panelists and scoring them on the ingenuity (but not necessarily the correctness!) of their responses. Points are scored for being interesting; points are lost for being pathetically obvious. Taking on the challenge are some of Inis Nua’s favorite people: Mike Dees, Kevin Glaccum, Clare Mahoney and Adam Rzepka. Need more? Here’s a CLIP from the original show.
If you like websites like Listverse and Mentalfloss, you’ll love QI. It’s like a pub quiz for Anglophiles and trivia enthusiasts.
August 5 – Never Mind the Buzzcocks
Don’t miss our third and last Summer Happy Hour featuring an Inis Nua tip of the hat to Never Mind the Buzzcocks, a long-running BBC2 panel show that skewers the world of popular music.
Known for its irreverence and general ribbing of musical artists and participants alike, Never Mind the Buzzcocks quizzes panelists on the hi-jinks of pop stars, rock ‘n’ roll trivia and famous song lyrics. See for yourself HERE. Put MTV, Hollywood Squares and Whose Line is it Anyway? into a blender and you come up with Never Mind the Buzzcocks.
