“The best pop quiz in town” – Pub Quizzers

“It’s far from serious stuff as the potty-mouthed quizmaster guides you through some pretty silly rounds, including one based on Bob Holness’s ‘Blockbusters’. – Time Out ‘London’s Ten Best Pub Quizzes’.

“Die-hard musos will love it, with rounds such as Badly Drawing Boy, in which teams guess the LP sleeve from a kiddy’s scrawl.” – British Airways” High Life magazine.

“I was really expecting it to be damn tough, but it was definitely accessible to all levels of music knowledge (the first question was to name just one member of JLS – no, we didn’t get it)……….
Here’s a couple of questions that I can remember – What was Bob Marley’s middle name? Nesta (we got that one)
What was the name of Tele Sevales’ big hit in the 70s? If (we didn’t get that one). In the picture round there was a picture of two toilets as a cryptic clue to an artist – who was it? Lulu, of course (got that one too). Lots of fun … and the host is quite the wit.” – “I ♥ MUSIQUE

“Paul is a London legend” – Billy Reeves, BBC London 94.9

“This one is big. Really big… ” – Qype

“Quizmaster Paul is halfway through a bravura performance of Bat Out Of Hell on his Bontempi keyboard. I look around and a good 60 per cent of the assembled audience is literally weeping with laughter. This is without doubt the best pub quiz of all time” – Jude Georges, ‘Twee’ fanzine

“Some Northern bloke hosts it and for one round plays pop hits on a Bontempi organ.. everyone laughs their heads of when they realise the plinky plonk bossanova tune he’s playing is actually Anarchy In the UK or something, then he looks up completely straight faced and says ‘OK, so 2 points if you can guess that one.’ Haha…” – View London.co.uk

Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer Christmas Special

Mr.B began his Chap-Hop career in the summer of 2007 when he decided to bring elements of his previous incarnations (UK rapper, jump-up breaks producer, banjolele maverick and dandy) together and create a genre.

Since then he has travelled the world, from Surrey to Osaka, Banstead to Berlin, Middlesborough to Minneapolis, Norway to New York and the Edinburgh Fringe to Glastonbury bringing his beats, rhymes and manners. As well as songs about cricket, pipe smoking, high society and interfering with livestock.

His videos have garnered millions of view on YouTube and his media appearances have included Rapping for Jeremy Paxman on Newsnight, playing live on BBC Radio One for Rob Da Bank, Nick Grimshaw and Scott Mills, on Radio Two for Claudia Winkleman and Steve Lamacq, 6Music for Tom Robinson and Shaun Kenaveny and for Zoe Ball on Sky Arts. He was also once the front page of the Wall Street Journal and was described by the Daily Mail as ‘Controversial’.
