Auditions for University Challenge tonight

Auditions seeking brum boffins will be on campus tonight

We’ve all been there; sat on the sofa watching Paxman do his thing, hoping to luckily guess one correct answer, to be better than the Oxbridge brigade…

And tonight brings the chance for some of our fellow Brum boffs to sweat their bollocks off in front of the real fleshy Paxo.

If you’re able to answer questions other than music or popular culture, you should be auditioning to be a part of the University of Birmingham team. If you aren’t, where have you been hiding?

Seriously though?

“You don’t know what the square root of 2674356789214890298.78290937 is? You moron!”

Tonight, UoB brain-boxes will be put in gear to audition for the Brum team.

Our team could be competing against the likes of these fitties:

Dennis is quite difficult.

The auditions will be held in Nuffield G17 between 6-8pm.

Are you auditioning or know anybody who is? Let us know how they get on, the Tab believes in you!
