Just to ensure there is a good category mix, all of these categories mirror categories from a previous Sporcle Live game (or are very, very similar). So these aren’t questions involving things “only I would know,” LOL!

 

Game One
1. Sketch Comedy – What Canadian sketch comedy troupe had sketches including “These are the Daves I know,” “Chicken Lady,” and also a feature film called “Brain Candy?”
