Wait Wait!

Went to see a taping of "Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me!" at TPAC last night.  It was so much fun!  I got tickets for the show and the VIP reception as a gift for my donation to our local NPR station.  The seats were perfect!  I always wondered how people got those good seats, and last night I was one of those people!  It was so neat to see Carl Kasell standing there announcing in that wonderful voice of his!  Then Peter Sagal was hilarious as usual.  So many funny things!  The panelists were Roy Blount, Jr,, Kyrie O'Conner, and Adam Felber (writer for the Bill Maher show on HBO and professional comedian).  Vince Gill played "Not My Job" and was down-to-earth and funny.

This show will be on weekend after next since this one is a holiday and will have clips from past shows.  You can also listen to podcasts free on iTunes.  So if you are not a regular listener, be sure to listen to the one we saw last night on the weekend of the 8th and 9th.  Check your local listings!

You can read about it HERE and listen to the entire show or to Bill Clinton when he was on last weekend.  That was quite entertaining! 

Here's a video of how they put the show together and a Chicago show.

I love that show- we listen to the podcast of it every week-that, and the Prairie Home Companion.

Have only heard it a few times, but it is good from what I have heard.

what the mr. said! we always listen on car trips! it certainly makes watching the news a little more worthwhile when i know the answers to the games.
