Hello! I run a small trivia company and am looking for a host to take over an established night at a bar on the Northwest Side. The current host has built a great following of people from the neighborhood, so the wheel has already been invented for a successful night. Her schedule no longer permits her to host, so I'm looking for someone to take over the night. I want someone with a good personality that knows how to engage the crowd and build a relationship with the people that come every week. Each week I'll send you a powerpoint with the questions, a doc with all the answers, and some mp3 files for any "name that tune" rounds. I pride myself on trivia that is fun and engaging, appeals to people of all different ages and backgrounds, and mixes academic topics with pop culture.
I need someone that is dependable, and can commit to a standing gig every Weds from 7pm to about 9ish. All of the sound equipment and everything else you need is provided, you'd just need to set it up and get ready in advance of it starting at 7pm. I will train you, and ideally have you shadow the current host to get the run down. You would just need a personal laptop to play music and run through the slides. It pays $75/cash each week.
I am looking for someone with experience on a microphone. If you have a background in comedy or theater, have ever DJ'd, or have any other relevant experience, this would likely be a great fit. Please send me a little bit about yourself. I look forward to meeting you.
