Curtis Earth and his stable of quiz hosts have been voted BEST TRIVIA NIGHT IN ORLANDO
for 2014, 2016 and 2018 by the readers of the Orlando Weekly. With forays into singing, writing, ventriloquism, magic and as a professional DJ, Curtis Earth has always enjoyed entertaining.
It was during one of his disc jockey stints that he accidentally began his 25 plus year career as a Quiz Master. In 1993, while a disc jockey at a Holiday Inn lounge in Lancaster PA. One day during his happy hour stint he decided to ask some questions from a few Trivial Pursuit cards that were left behind on the DJ stand. He started asking the questions, people started answering them enthusiastically and he knew he had something. He began writing questions and formatting a quiz game. Soon word spread and lounge filled each week with eager quiz game fans. Within a year he was hosting quiz games five nights a week at various restaurants and pubs in Lancaster, PA.
In 2002 he moved his show to Orlando FL. His quiz nights became the talk of the town among trivia fans and soon he was again hosting his quiz 5 nights a week. Many of his early fans were students of the University of Central Florida and Full Sail University and later on the students of Rollins College. With no competition and plenty of venues, Curtis had his work cut out for him and soon began training new hosts to help him with the demand.
In 2003 he was chosen to provide a trivia database for Disney Cruise Lines. A Disney computer quiz game for families to play together. In 2004 he was asked by Clear Channel Radio to bring an hour long quiz segment each week to the Shannon Burke Show on 104.1 FM. The segment was a hit and lasted 4 years. When the Shannon Burke show ended he was then asked to keep his Quiz Friday segment for the hugely popular SBK LIVE show on the same station. He did for 3 years.
