Happy Hour Trivia Night in The Comedy Lounge

Welcome to the online home for Happy Hour Trivia -- a ninety minute bar trivia quiz held once a month at the DC Improv Lounge. Teams of hopeful brainiacs square off for glory and prizes, in one of the finest comedy venues in the country. The night is hosted by Chris White, a leader of the 1994 Penncrest High School championship Scott's Hi-Q Team.

It works like most bar trivia nights, only the production values are way higher and the questions are a little big tougher. Each game consists of four rounds. We usually have two standard "question and answer" rounds, where Chris reads questions over the microphone and you fill in your answer sheet. There's a timed "worksheet" round, and there's also always a video or audio round using the Improv's sweet projector. There are prizes for first, second and third place.

Unless we note otherwise, doors open at 6:30, the game starts around 7, and there is no cover charge. If you'd like to sign up a team please email info@dcimprov.com.

No groups larger than 8 allowed to sign up. Doors open at 6:30pm for seating. Even with reservations, if you do not arrive by 6:45pm we cannot guarantee your seats; they will be released to the stand-by list. The event will start at 7pm and run approximately 90 minutes. Attendance for Happy Hour Trivia does not guarantee admission to the comedy show in the main room. Tickets must be purchased for the comedy show separately. Seating will be reserved for those attending both events. Due to the 8pm showtime in the main showroom; if you participate in Happy Hour Trivia you will miss at least 30 minutes of the show in the main room.
