Scott Rogowsky            

Comedian & Former Host of HQ Trivia

Scott Rogowsky is an actor, comedian & the former host of the popular app and trivia game, HQ. He is one of the hosts of ChangeUp DAZN, a baseball broadcast program, and is proprietor of Running Late with Scott Rogowsky, a live talk show held at various venues around New York City (such as the Gramercy Theater) and Los Angeles.

HQ was released in 2017 on iOS and released on Android in January 2018. The host of the show asks a series of twelve multiple choice questions, each with three possible answers. Those players who get the questions correct within the 10 second limit move on, the rest are eliminated. To the tens of millions of people who joined the live, daily HQ Trivia broadcasts since the show’s launch in August 2017, Rogowsky was affectionately called “Quiz Daddy” and admired for his quick wit and improvisational panache while hosting the viral app sensation. HQ Trivia was shut down in 2020.

When he’s not on camera, Rogowsky is on stage at comedy clubs and college campuses performing stand-up or hosting Running Late, his self-produced talk show on which he has interviewed over 400 celebrity guests since 2011 including Jon Hamm, Paul Rudd, Steve Buscemi, Sarah Silverman, John Oliver, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Amy Sedaris, Nick Kroll, Paul Dano, Matt Groening, Kevin Nealon, Reggie Watts, Dick Cavett, Jim Gaffigan, Dan Rather, Janeane Garofalo, Abbi Jacobson & Ilana Glazer, and Desus & Mero.

Rogowsky is also a talented writer and producer, having produced on Debate Wars for Seeso and Crowd Goes Wild for Fox Sports 1 and having written for The Onion News Network on IFC and Onion SportsDome on Comedy Central. He has also produced, written, and/or starred in several viral videos including Mother’s Day Lie Detector (18 million YouTube views) and the Fake Books on the Subway series which has been viewed over 200 million times across YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram.

He was named one of The 25 Most Influential People on the Internet by Time Magazine, the 2018 Live Streamer of the Year at the Shorty Awards and the 2018 New Yorker of the Year by TimeOut New York.
