Bryan Nickel

Founder/Host

 

Bryan founded Vancouver Trivia Party in 2013. What started out as something fun to host quickly turned into something more when he found that not only was he having a great time with his audience interacting every week, he was also helping his clients increase their bottom line. 


Now expanding into the corporate world with his experience as a trainer and sales manager with various companies, Bryan hosts team building and sales workshops that are fun and interactive.

 
When he's not doing trivia, he is a stay at home dad to his 3 kids having a great time exploring Vancouver every chance they get!

Graham.jpg
Graham Fitzpatrick
Host 

 

"Graham is a recovering accountant who appreciates anything silly, has been accused of dad humour on multiple occasions and takes Halloween costumes unusually seriously.  Graham has discovered trivia hosting as an opportunity to be around healthy competition with a touch of whimsy, while delving into many different topics, including his favourites: maps/geography, sports and music. 

An absurdly loyal Vancouver Canucks fan, Graham enjoys playing rollerhockey in the summer and ice hockey in the winter. He also dabbles in acoustic guitar, takes a keen interest in environmental matters and is often found cleaning up garbage around his Burnaby neighbourhood or taking care of the local stream."

Kenny Hammond, also known as "Kenny the Cod", is a born and raised Newfoundlander with a love for all things fishy. When he's not busy being an electrician, you can find him at the dock reeling in the biggest catch of the day. His secret to success? Bait made of his grandmother's secret recipe fish chowder.

In his free time, Kenny can be found practicing his seagull impressions, perfecting his "screech-in" ceremony, and playing a mean game of "Kenny and the Cod" with his buddies. He's also an enthusiastic member of the "Newfoundland and Labrador Beard Growers Association" and has won several awards for his impressive facial hair. Don't let his silly antics fool you, Kenny takes his cod very seriously, he'll defend it with his life and will make sure no one messes with it.
