Jeopardy! Champ Buzzy Cohen: Ep. 97

Facebook/Jeopardy

Buzzy Cohen is one of the most popular Jeopardy! contestants ever. And one of my personal favorites. Now that he’s back as a team captain for the Jeopardy! All-Star Games, I caught up with him to hear about his team’s 48-hour Airbnb training session for the competition, what he’s done with all the money, and get tips for playing the game better.

Plus, find out where you can find former Jeopardy! champs playing trivia in Los Angeles every week, which would terrify me if I walked in expecting to win.

A New Hosting Reel

Even without consistent work lately, it’s been an eventful six months. So I decided to update my reel. You might’ve heard: I made a pretty big national TV appearance. Also spent a lot of time working on personal projects like Day in Their Life and Mike in a Minute. Hope you like it.

But seriously, if you know anyone who needs a host — like, I’m pretty available.
