Pub Quiz

The bastard child of Sticky Moments, Shooting Stars and Wales, Pub Quiz is a comedy panel game set in a fictional pub, except when it went on tour and then it was set in actual pubs.

Originally it pitted three linked civilians against three Welsh celebrities given comedy names (Lesbians vs Thespians, for example). What followed was a rather subverted quiz, the usual individual rounds, team rounds, guess-what-song-the-audience-are-trying-to-convey-through-raspberry rounds, that sort of thing. Questions utilized a mixture of single and double (but mostly single) entendre, although there is the occasional blast of amusing lateral thinking involved as well.

Hovis is our hugely lecherous host, whilst our put-upon assistant keeps score on a blackboard.


Frank Hovis first appeared in 1987 in a stand-up routine on 3-2-1! The character progressed to the Channel Four comedy series Absolutely, where he delivered monologues called 'On The Lavatory'.

Beca Evans (Sophia Gardens) was a DJ with BBC Radio Cymru and also presented some shows on S4C around the late 90s. She quit presenting a few years ago (hence her departure from Pub Quiz) and now works as a producer at independent production company Fflic.
