Wait Wait… Don't Tell Me! is National Public Radio’s Peabody Award-winning comedy news quiz show. Host Peter Sagal leads a rotating panel of comedians, writers, listener contestants, and celebrity guests through a rollicking review of the week’s news. Contestants vie for the most coveted prize in all of public radio: a custom-recorded greeting by any of our cast members for their voicemail.
A panel of celebrity guests will join host Peter Sagal and announcer Bill Kurtis onstage at Blossom Music Center. The panel includes:
- Special Guest: Piper Kerman, author of the memoir Orange is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison. Piper’s memoir inspired the hit Netflix series Orange is the New Black.
- Comedian Alonzo Bodden, winner of season 3 of NBC’s Last Comic Standing and panelist on the Game Show Network’s Mind of a Man.
- Maeve Higgins, contributing writer for The New York Times and host of the podcast (and author of the book of the same name) Maeve in America.
- Journalist, humorist, and actor Mo Rocca, correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning and former correspondent for The Daily Show.
