Dom Joly Adds Extra Chuckles to Grand Quiz

Dom Joly

TV personality, journalist and comedian, Dom Joly, is well known for his quirky humour and hidden camera show, Trigger Happy TV. However on the 30th June he will be adding another starring role to his long list of successful performances when he acts as quizmaster at the annual Julian House Brain of Bath quiz event.

Up to 25 company teams will compete for the coveted title of Brain of Bath champions for 2016. This is the 18th event and organisers are hoping that the traditional atmosphere of genial competition will carry on under the watchful eye of Dom Joly.

Cecil Weir has been organising the event since 2001 and is delighted that the busy comedian was able to support the event; “Although by their very nature quizzes are competitive one of the great things about the Brain Bath is that the teams participate in a fun and light hearted way.”

“The number one goal of the evening is to raise funds towards the work of Julian House but along the way there’s no rule that says you can’t enjoy yourself at the same time.”

“I’m sure Dom will help us to achieve that and perhaps share some snippets of what happened behind the scenes when he was in the Australian jungle with Ant and Dec – or the out takes that didn’t get aired on Trigger Happy TV.”

“Such events are vital to an organisation like Julian House. Homelessness is not a fashionable cause and we have to work very hard for a disproportionate amount of our income. However once we have an opportunity to involve companies in our work and dispel some of the myths attached to homelessness, gaining further advocacy is not normally an issue.”

The event will once again be sponsored by long time Julian House supporter, Deloitte.

Companies wishing to join the fun on 30th June should contact Cecil Weir on 01225 354652 or email
