I  hired Ryan Budds to run a team trivia event at my company's Holiday Party and it was a huge success. Ryan was charismatic, funny, customized the categories to go with the holiday theme and kept everyone engaged. Having everyone work in teams was a great team building event that was actually FUN and perfect for coworkers of different ages. I got a lot of compliments on my decision to hire Ryan for our entertainment this year. Thanks, Ryan! He also makes a great MC!

I celebrated my big 4-0 with a pajama party sleepover at the PodShare in the DTLA Arts District/Little Tokyo area. Many of my friends and I are trivia buffs, so I searched high and low looking for a host that could work a private party. I reached out to several people, but ultimately, settled on Trivia with Budds due to his glowing write-ups, awesome website and comedy background. Not to mention, his highly competitive rates! Best decision I could've made. Ryan was incredibly responsive throughout the planning process and was even helpful in providing tips for a trivia round about me in the game. During the event, Ryan was funny, engaging and gracious--remembering individuals' names and injecting icebreaker mini-competitions to get people mingling. My guests raved about it long after he left (which he was kindly in no rush to do). Plainly said, he was a highlight of the night.

We met Ryan at the Angeles Golf Course location of the Malibu Family Wine Bar in Sunland.  He hosts trivia there and it is a riot!  When we asked him to host a trivia game and emcee our 2015 Fundraiser at the same location, he was enthusiastically on-board!  From the get go, Ryan was a pleasure to work with in coordinating a tailor-made trivia game that would showcase our rescue organization:  Ken-Mar Rescue.  He even donated his time on the event and brought really fun prizes.  Everyone enjoyed the interaction and we would definitely ask him back!

Ryan was phenomenal from start to finish! I work at a University in the greater Los Angeles area and he did a great job engaging with our students from start to finish! He made the students laugh, noticed those who weren't as involved and got them involved as well, created a fun and welcoming atmosphere, and really a special element to our event. Couldn't have asked for anything better!

Besides how he performed during the event, he was also fantastic as we were coordinating the event. Super fast when responding to emails, he made a trip out to the venue to do a walkthrough, and was willing to adjust his material to meet our needs. Looking forward to working with him again in the future!

Hiring Ryan for my 90s-themed 30th birthday party was the best decision I made!  We held the party at home and hosted a group of 40 people.  I have a lot of different groups of friends and I always worry about how we'll bring everyone together.  90s trivia was just the ticket, and Ryan did a phenomenal job of bringing everyone together!  

Through email correspondence, Ryan was super attentive, accommodating and made the process so easy!  Day of, he dressed up in 90s gear like the rest of the party (awesome!), and he came prepared to screenshare the questions from his iPad to the TV which made it so easy for everyone to participate.  We loved that each round of trivia was different and one even used our phones (so cool!), and guests walked away with awesome prizes. 

Everyone can't stop talking about how fun it was!  Ryan takes your party to the next level - highly recommend Trivia with Budds!

I'm part of a team of 20 who work at a DTLA-based company, and we were lucky to have Ryan Budds host trivia for us as a team building event following an all-day meeting. 

I'm not even into trivia, and this might have been one of my favorite group activities ever. To the point that I'm trying to think of any excuse to hire him/them again (my birthday is too far away). 

What I loved:
1. Extremely responsive and so willing to tailor the experience to our group and our needs (we had an "appreciation" theme to our day, and he worked it into the games very creatively, deftly avoiding any cheesiness)

2. Polished materials - Sounds a bit eye-rolly, but really, the aesthetics of his presentation and the way he seamlessly leveraged technology really added to the experience

3. Perfect tone - Our company can be pretty conservative, but he perfectly played to his audience, and had every personality type in tears [of laughter]; even our most critical colleagues were overheard gushing about the fun they had

4. Continuously engaging - There was a never a dull moment from the moment we began; there were different games in between trivia rounds, different ways we were competing even within the trivia rounds, and sprinkled throughout was Ryan's hilarious commentary

5. Adaptable - We were running late so our time with him was a bit truncated, we had some random real-time asks, and people were making/wolfing down chili in the background...he not only rolled with it all, but took everything to the next level in the best way possible

Seriously, wish we could hire this guy to facilitate every event, meeting, or life in general.
