He has additionally made appearances on The View, The Montel Williams Show, The Discovery Channel, FOX, ESPN and The Disney Channel, and has been profiled by The New York Times and other media outlets.

“Working with TrivWorks™ will provide a unique experience for companies seeking a fresh new way to entertain employees or clients,” says Oakes. “I look forward to integrating our skill sets into a never-before-seen corporate entertainment hybrid, which will take both TrivWorks™ trivia events and my live stage act to a whole new level. This will be smart, interactive entertainment at its finest, and I look forward to bringing it to life!”
