Alex Love – How to Win a Pub Quiz 4**** - One4Review
one4review | On 12, Aug 2017
There is something about the British psyche that makes pub quizzes the success they are, probably more than any nation in the world. It may however be a bit unusual to go to a pub quiz around midday, but once inside the darkened venue it doesn’t really matter. This has all the ingredients required, available booze, plenty of quiz teams, all was set
The host and quiz master is Alex Love who mixes his ‘tutorial’, he is a pub quiz winner after all, with pleasing stand-up, generating laughs and a fair number of groans along the way, but entertaining one and all in the process.
The show thrives on audience interaction and the sell-out crowd who were in when I attended were certainly up for getting involved.
Love is a genial comic, and non-threatening. His choice of this vehicle to entertain worked and worked well. Obviously there is no higher message, other than to help us all be winners, it’s just a fun way to spend an hour… and maybe win a prize as well along the way. I am a fan of pub quizzes and also stand-up so it seems a perfect mix for me, but it isn’t essential to be a quiz lover, it is fun for all.
