Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me

Join us for a big screen broadcast of NPR's Wait Wait... Don’t Tell Me!, Tuesday, May 7, 7:30 pm at the AMC Newport Cinema.

After spray-tanning away their Chicago winter complexions, the cast of NPR’s Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! is ready for its close up with comedy's “Wild and Crazy Guy.” Comedian Steve Martin and musical guests Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings will join host Peter Sagal, official scorekeeper Carl Kasell, plus panelists Paula Poundstone, Mo Rocca and Tom Bodett in a performance captured live at NYU on May 2.  
More info here:

In this live special of the weekly radio show, Sagal and Kasell test the current events knowledge of “Wait Wait” panelists and listener contestants. Multi-talented entertainer Steve Martin jumps down the rabbit hole and plays “Not My Job,” the show’s segment where famous people are asked questions completely outside their purview. Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings kick up the fun atmosphere with live jams between segments.

In addition to a funky soundtrack and “Not My Job,” the live cinema event will include  favorite “Wait Wait” segments including "Who's Carl This Time?" where contestants guess what newsmakers Kasell is impersonating, and "Bluff the Listener," challenging players to select the one true story out of three unlikely tales from the panelists. All along, contestants vie for the most coveted prize in all of public radio: a custom-recorded voicemail greeting by Carl Kasell.


DINNER -- We'll eat circa 6:30 at TOM + CHEE on the Riverwalk Level.  If it is too crowded, the fallback will be DEWEY'S PIZZA on the Mezzanine Level.

      Hi Chinyere, you can do tix in advance or at the door. I'm told that the first screening at the AMC, on May 2, was pretty full
