Wait Wait… Don't Tell Me!
WebsiteWait Wait… Don't Tell Me!
A sort of cousin to The Daily Show, NPR’s Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! is a weekly news-quiz program that’s equally funny and informative. Host Peter Sagal leads the show along with official scorekeeper/judge/legendary NPR newsman Carl Kasell and a rotating panel of expert smartasses that includes Daily Show alum Mo Rocca, comedian Paula Poundstone, and author P.J. O’Rourke. The show has grown in popularity since its 1998 debut (it’s syndicated in more than 350 cities), and it works particularly well in the live environment, where Sagal and the panelists feed off the crowd’s energy and riff away.
