About

Our Beginning

Last Call Trivia began in the Fall of 2007 when founders Adam and Drew saw a niche for great Trivia Nights in the Cincinnati market. The 10 years that followed bootstrapped their love of Trivia into the seats of hundreds of bars across the country.

 

The best part of our epic journey has been the community we’ve been able to create and that community is a testament to the power of Trivia Nights. We believe that our role in this industry is not a zero-sum game, but rather an infinite game where we seek to help knowledge spread and lives change. 

Thank you for joining us on this journey and we hope that you’ll continue to be a part of our story.

THE STORY BEHIND OUR LOGO

We took inspiration from the craft-brewing industry, with the owl being wise, nocturnal, and predatory.The eye was then designed as a quotation mark (rotate the owl-eye 90 degrees counter-clockwise and you’ll see it), as well as a drinking glass (look straight into the eye) to represent our thirst and passion for knowledge.

Core Values

Keep Them Guessing
Avoid Trivial Pursuits
Stay Thirsty

#EndALZ

Part of our core operation is a dedication to Ending Alzheimer’s. Each year, the Last Call Trivia team participates in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, as well as donating proceeds from Ludimentis to the Alzheimer’s Association. 

 

Our goal in this monumental movement is to end this terrible disease, one trivia question at a time.

Questionable Leadership

Adam Johnston

CEO

Give me a bottle of bourbon and half a chicken, and I’ll conquer the world! I’ve got life in me, and it’s fueled each and every day by my inspiring Team. Drew and I started Last Call in the Fall of 2007 and the subsequent years have taught me more than I ever learned in business school.

Drew Turner

Creative Director

When Adam and I started Last Call Trivia, my motivation was world domination (or at least trivia domination).  I’ve always had a knack for remembering useless information.  By combining my creativity and soon-to-be useful knowledge with Adam’s business background, Last Call Trivia was born!

Badass Team

Jen Klosterman

National Sales Manager

After being a stay at home mom for 10 years, I decided to enter the world of trivia.  Sales is my passion and after six years, I’m still at it.

Aiden Williams

Bar Traffic Controller

I never dreamed of being in a sales role or management position. I wanted to change the world one student at a time as a History or Math teacher at a high school. 

Dave Gottlieb

Creative Specialist

I grew up in a household that tuned into Jeopardy! every night of the week. I never realized that knowing, “A dressy term for hearts, spades, diamonds or clubs,” would help me out as an adult.

Brooklynn Holtz

Marketing Director

I’ve had just about every job there is. I need a challenge. I need excitement. And, sometimes, I just need change. Last Call Trivia does it all for me. 

Brianna LeCompte

National Sales Manager

I still remember attending my first trivia night back in 2013. A group of my coworkers and I saw that a spot down the street was hosting a trivia night, and we decided to go for it. I was instantly hooked, the combination of good beer, great company, and some healthy competition was electrifying.

Brittani Rable

Creative Overlord

I am a creative soul by nature and love doing anything I can put my mind to from graphics and writing to embroidery and photography. I love trying new things and enjoy the thrill of a good challenge, whether that be in the form of a trivia question or attempting to learn Japanese.

Ellen Wilshire

Coordinator of Productive Badassery

My goal after graduating from college has been to never stop learning. There is a whole big world out there full of endless knowledge and creative development and I want to explore it all. Whether it be personally or professionally, I want to stay on my toes constantly expanding my capabilities.

Casey Beach

Investigative Triviologist

I’ve always had a thirst for knowledge, and as a writer for Last Call Trivia, I love the fact that I’m constantly learning new things through my writing and researching. I love that all of the so-called useless information I’ve acquired over the years can be applied to a job that I’m so passionate about. 

Griffin Cain

Talent Implementation Technician

When it comes to being personally satisfied with my life, I’m not one for compromise. I think the best way to achieve personal fulfillment is by fueling your passions, and I’m constantly on the lookout for new people, places, and experiences to energize me both personally or professionally.
