Hard Quiz is an Australian comedy quiz show for television that was created by Victoria-based Thinkative Television (Tomorrow Tonight, The Weekly) for ABC. The show, which is presented by Australian stand-up comedian and presenter Tom Gleeson (The Weekly with Charlie Pickering, skitHOUSE), sees four contestants with declared specialist subject areas compete in various rounds of questions as they seek to win the Hard Quiz trophy. Hard Quiz is actually a spin-off of Hard Chat, a satirical segment of the comedic news program The Weekly with Charlie Pickering. Typical for the show is the joking interaction between Gleeson and his contestants, who will often mock each other's and make jokes at each other's expense. For his work as host and moderator on the show, Gleeson was awarded the Gold Logie Award for Most Popular Personality on Australian Television in 2019.
