To the tens of millions of people who have joined the live, daily HQ Trivia broadcasts since the show’s launch in August 2017, SCOTT ROGOWSKY is affectionately called “Quiz Daddy” and admired for his quick wit and improvisational panache while hosting the viral app sensation. When he’s not on camera, Scott is on stage at comedy clubs and college campuses performing stand-up or hosting Running Late, his self-produced talk show on which he has interviewed over 400 celebrity guests since 2011 including Jon Hamm, Paul Rudd, Steve Buscemi, Sarah Silverman, John Oliver, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Amy Sedaris, Nick Kroll, Dick Cavett, Jim Gaffigan, Dan Rather, Abbi Jacobson & Ilana Glazer, and Desus & Mero. Scott was born in New York City and currently resides there. Isn't that interesting?

GRAMMY-nominated artist MATISYAHU has spent his career creating his own space in modern music. In this time, he's developed a loyal following within the improvisational-jam, Hip-Hop, and international scenes that has driven singles such as “One Day” and “King Without a Crown” to international recognition and success. His newest album, Undercurrent, was released last year via Thirty Tigers and Matisyahu’s own imprint, Fallen Sparks. The album embodies a collaborative and freeform spirit as Matisyahu and his band seamlessly merge instrumental improvisation sessions with lyrics and vocals.
