Welcome to the online home for Happy Hour Trivia -- a one-hour bar trivia quiz held once a month at the DC Improv Lounge (1140 Connecticut Ave. NW, Washington, DC). 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. You can even reserve seats if you notify us in advance (trivia@dcstandup.com).

Last time at trivia ... (5/14/15)

Spring was in the air. Or maybe it was nitrous oxide. Either way, we had a good time at the May edition of trivia. "May Flies" had people trying to guess the top 10 passenger airports in the world. "Flower Power" was a delightful Q&A round with flower names incorporated in both the Qs and the As. "Mother's Night" was our belated tribute to Mother's Day, with a bunch of mom-based questions. And "Cry Me a River" was our video round. With a pair of picture clues, teams had to identify a famous "river" -- everything from Joan Rivers to the Potomac River.

The Russian SEALS scored a 37 and won the dance-off tiebreaker for the big win. Das Boot LOST the dance-off tiebreaker (they claim they lost on purpose) to lock down second place. And one point off the lead in third place was More ISIS Jokes Please.
