Thank you for your interest in becoming a Quiz Meisters Host.
IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND CHECKING OUT A QUIZ MEISTERS SHOW PRIOR TO YOUR AUDITION.
ABOUT THE AUDITION:
Auditions are run as a “cattle call” audition. You will be in the room with 20 to 25 other auditionees. Each auditionee gets a few minutes on the microphone in which time we want you to tell us a bit about yourself, then deliver 3 trivia questions to the room, give the answer before moving onto the next question. We will provide you with a list of questions to choose from, but you can also make up your own questions if you like. Be creative, have fun and connect with your crowd. Having a silky radio voice or being the funniest comedian is not what we are necessarily looking for (it can be a bonus, though). What we want to see is how you interact with the crowd and how you relay the trivia to your audience.
ABOUT THE JOB:
Successful applicants will be trained up and inducted into the world-class, imaginary halls of Quiz Meisters. You may be offered a permanent gig, which means a repeat show every week at the same venue and same time. Pub gigs pay $100 per show. It’s about a 2 hour show, plus half an hour of setup and pack down. Quiz Meisters hosting is a fun, social job in which you get paid to hang out in a pub and be the centre of attention for a couple of hours. It’s a pretty good gig. It’s a great gig for students and for professionals who want a regular creative outlet. It is also a perfect platform for comedians to get regular stage time in front of a crowd - experience that's hard to get early on in your stand-up career. You do need to be committed to your show. If you regularly need time off for other gigs, travel or rehearsals, you risk losing your show to another host.
ABOUT QUIZ MEISTERS
Quiz Meisters is an innovative pub trivia concept that we started 15 years ago in Melbourne, dispelling the geeky stigma attached to traditional trivia. Our shows are not the “roll your eyes” type of trivia with a guy on a microphone testing the crowd like a dreaded high-school history exam. We get comedians and class-clowns to deliver our show, and train them up to create a fun, frantic, party atmosphere, all disguised under the banner of trivia. Check out quizmeisters.com.au to see what we do.
Once you click submit, you'll be on the list - we'll email you a week or so before the auditions with more information.
See you there!
