Big Fat Quiz of the USA

Big Fat Quiz of the USA

So if you don't know what The Big Fat Quiz of the Year is, here is a link. Big Fat Quiz of the Year 2006 Just watch it. I know it's and 1hr and 40 minutes long, but it's so worth it. Actually, watch all of them including the 80s, 90s, and 00s. Go now! I will wait........................................................................................................................... ..................................................................................................................................................................
..................................................................................................................................................................
...............................................................................................................................................I know, amazing, right? Told you! Moving on. Totally new found respect for Russell Brand.

Now that you know it is, you must agree that the US needs to steal that too. I mean that is what we do right? "The Office," "Being Human," "IT Crowd" (Yeah we tried to steal that, and it failed. Go find that clip. Joel McHale as Roy is interesting to say the least, but Moss is still the same!)
So, we need to steal this show too. My friend and I have come up with the perfect first set of teams. Obviously, after our first year we will have more. The show is too funny. Please submit your team ideas.

Here is our First Set

Team 1: Chris Hardwick and Wil Wheaton
Team 2: Joss Whedon and Seth Green
Team 3: Rachel Dratch and Scott Adsit
Host: Craig Ferguson 

Here is the reasoning for the teams. Knowing this will help us sell the idea to everyone and explain why it needs to be this specific at first. 

Team 1: First off, they are friends and hilariously funny together.  Also, they are two of the biggest nerds out there. Nerds always need to be on TV and comment on what happening in the world more. Watching them in any capacity be it podcast or twitter fights is always hellishly amusing and downright phenomenal. Done and done. 

Team 2: Well what is there to say about the God that is Joss Whedon. You know he would bring amazing things to the table. His is witty and a fantastic writer, and who knows maybe by the end of the quiz, this show will actually have a plot. Seth Green would be his partner because they have done some great audio commentary on Buffy, and I think bringing them back together would be great for some good old nostalgia. And who doesn't like nostalgia?

Team 3: There cannot be a show with comedian teams with out representing the biggest thing in comedy: SNL. Also, both came out of The Second City. Just a little knowledge for you. Technically this team can have a bit of change, but we would like to keep it to the SNL/30 Rock family. 

Host: Okay, yes he is not American. We know that, but he is not British either. So there! He is, however, insanely funny, and used to dealing with crazy comedians and celebrities. A big part of the hosts job is to reign in these crazies when necessary, but still be funny at the same time. That is not an easy task, (Why Jimmy Carr is amazing and we love him) so we need someone with experience. Also, we will never accept Ryan Seacrest for this position. You must be mad.


Look, it really shouldn't be that hard to get it off the ground. We just need the rights, a producer, a set, tons of money and 7 specific comedians (3 teams of 2 and 1 host.) Once we get that, we are golden. Who wants to head up that project? Anyone? We can discuss this. Let's just get the details out there so the person knows which comedians to call.
