Competitive eating with Food and the Beast…

John 'Dawsey' Dawes can be a real animal when it comes to consuming  large amounts of... well just about anything you can put on a plate.

We pitched Dawesy against experience funkster Josh Shea to get as much funk out as possible. Dawesy is the guy with a tattoo of Greggs (sandwich shop) on his arm.

At the time of recording, Dawesy was second in the British eating league. His eating exploits have also lost him 6 stone. (84lbs/38kgs). So forget going on a diet, get eating... he assures us there is a weight loss book coming soon.

What is FunkQuest ?

FunkQuest is a fun interactive online conversation game that features five rounds.

Funksters (players) view a board containing 20 individual icons (pictures)
 
Funksters select an icon from the board which most tweaks their interest.
 
Each Funky icon, when chosen reveals a Funky question, which may or may not be related to the icon.

Potential Funksters, have to think on their feet, answering the question within the strict time limit of one minute.  

We are looking for answers which might include; insights, useful and amusing snippets, and things we just didn't know.  

We call this FUNK.

The winner - based on audience votes - goes through to the next round of the Funkquest series.

What's so good about FUNKQUEST ?

The strict time limit does not allow funksters to give; multi-headed, long, complicated and self indulgent stories -
just short punchy bite-sized truly Funky ideas, as we GET THE FUNK OUT!

You get to hear new ideas and speakers from outside your usual network, which truly qualifies as FUNKY.

Funky Thinkers know that IDEAS only come from free-flowing CONVERSATION.
