I always tell people that the Newsroom is the thickest pub of the week and definitely the right place to come if you want to win money.
It’s not strictly true about the thick thing. It’s just that the Newsroom attracts staff-nights-out and the like where people are maybe not one hundred per cent quiz-focussed.
So if you know the quiz and how it goes, you usually do have a bit of an advantage over these passers-by. And it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but most people who come from other quizzes end up liking the Newsroom when they come. Tonight would be a good night to try it.
Giles Angels, for example, started off quizzing at the Joker but have found the Newsroom a happy hunting-ground. Maybe they’ll win the money tonight? We’ll see…

That was the image anyway. I had one of her albums. It was all right.
