What Is Movie Trivia Schmoedown? A Look Inside The Biggest Movie Trivia Competition In The Country

One of my strengths as an entertainment writer is my encyclopedic-like knowledge about certain aspects of pop culture. Name a movie and I can probably tell you what year it came out. Ask me who won Best Actor in any year I was alive — no sweat. Fun facts about the production? I’ve got those in the bag, too.

However deep I may feel my movie knowledge is, though, it pales in comparison to the competitors — yes, competitors — on Movie Trivia Schmoedown, the biggest movie trivia event in these fine 50 states of ours.

Featuring larger-than-life personalities that have made wrestling such a pop-cultural staple for half a century, Movie Trivia Schmoedown showcases the best-of-the-best when it comes to movie trivia, creating a wildly entertaining combination of enjoyable entertainment and authentic competition.

How did Movie Trivia Schmoedown start?

Like all good ideas, Movie Trivia Schmoedown creator Kristian Harloff came up with the plan… as a 20-something-year old in Florida who was running his own boxing league, of course! Realizing that the concept that’s worked for boxing — building up competitors and championships and league — for so long could be applied to other industries, Harloff combined that knowledge with his newfound love of stand-up comedy — improv games, in particular — to create what has now become the Movie Trivia Schmoedown. Oh, and a chance encounter with the one and only Sarah Silverman also played a role.
