The Saturday Quiz

Andrew Lloyd Webber with Nicola and Rosie Dempsey

Season 5, Ep. 20

Two years ago, British comedy musical duo Flo & Joan (aka real life sisters Rosie and Nicola Dempsey) came and did the quiz and were justifiably stumped by a whole lot of Australian-centric questions. This time around, they're lucky enough to get at least one question right in their trivia sweet spot.

  • 22. Nicknames and Anagrams with Claire Bird and Hugo Williams

    43:26
    Claire Bird and Hugo Williams are both members of Ponycam Collective. What is a ponycam collective? Well, that is a good question that Claire and Hugo are probably well equipped to answer, but which, unfortunately, is not on the quiz, so there’s not much point in asking them. Although performing seemingly pointless tasks does seem to be very much part of the Ponycam Collective reason for being, so perhaps they’ll reveal it anyway. Regardless, they are performing their incredible show Burnout Paradise on the 11th, 12th and 13th of July 6.30pm at the Bondi Pavilion as part of the Bondi Festival. Get tickets here:https://www.bondifestival.com.au/event/burnout-paradise/
