Who doesn’t love a good trivia game? After all, it’s fun and you get to learn little interesting tidbits of info about anything and everything under the sun. But it can be even more fun if you throw in a bunch of comedians to answer the questions. Think about it, have you ever watched a celebrity special of a particular game show? If not, consider Hollywood Squares — I don’t know about you but for me, it’s fun to watch because of the funny side comments, rhetoric, and one-liners that the celebrities say just before giving the real answers, especially if they’re comedic actors.
That’s what Steve Frech’s podcast titled What Do You Know? is like. It’s what you might get if you crossed Hollywood Squares with Whose Line Is It Anyway. It’s a comedy quiz show wherein a panel consisting of four comedians are asked a series of questions by Steve about a particular theme (each episode has a different theme), and points are rewarded not just for giving the correct answers but also for making him and the audience laugh.
In this particular episode, which was recorded on March 31st, the theme is Las Vegas. That means the panelists are going to be asked questions that have something to do with Sin City. Hence we’re going to find out much they know about it and its history.
