DelGaudio's Quiz

Postby Jack Shalom » March 3rd, 2018, 10:23 pm

Yesterday, card magician Derek DelGaudio appeared on NPR radio's quiz show, Ask Me Another, where his quiz category was…playing cards.

Derek answered questions like, "One of the four Kings' faces is different from the other three: which, and why?" But it was the final question that was the most amusing. Here's how the conversation went:

Host: "According to mathematicians at Harvard and Columbia, how many---"

DelGaudio (and magicians across the country): "Seven!"

Host: (Stunned silence, then laughter) "Yes, correct."

Thank you for that Jack, bringing a big smile early on a Sunday morning.

Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett (known in the UK as The Two Ronnies) once did a sketch based on the Mastermind quiz show, where contestants answered questions on their specialised subject. In this sketch, Corbett gives answers to the "question before last".

Haha - The Two Ronnies were brilliant.
