The Games Karaoke People Play: Adding Fun to Karaoke, Work, and Life with Mike Montague

The Games Karaoke People Play: Adding Fun to Karaoke, Work, and Life with Mike Montague

If there’s one thing folks lose over time–even in a pursuit as wild and zany as karaoke–it’s the fun, the joie de vivre that makes everything that much better. While Adam and Ed have always tried to carpe de karaoke and make nights more fun, adding some structure and formats to that has really amped up their karaoke nights just the way that the Karaoke Trivia Bullpen has amped up this podcast. They cover everything from the low tech pulling-songs-out-of-hats, to more app-based things, to games like Kulture Karaoke that you can purchase at Target if you’re big into ‘90s R&B and hip hop.

Why all this talk of games? Glad you asked! The fellas bring on an expert on play in this episode–Mike Montague, the mind behind the “Playful Humans” podcast, who has hosted karaoke and game shows, provided opening act support for acts as varied as Frankie Valli and Billy Idol, and whose mission is to make people’s work and play time more fun and engaging.

As always, you can find more info on the website (, and on social media--the show is @sungpoorly on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and now even Tiktok. You can reach Adam and Ed via email by sending a message to And if you want to support the podcast and snag yourself some great karaoke and podcast swag doing it, our store has all of that and more–
