Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me! Live

Please join us this May for a live Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me! cinema event!

Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me! Live is a national cinecast of the weekly radio show from NPR, featuring host Peter Sagal and official judge and scorekeeper Carl Kasell. For this big screen adaptation of the popular radio news quiz, Sagal and Kasell will quiz Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me! panelists - the comedians, writers and style icons Paula Poundstone, Mo Rocca and Tom Bodett - special guests and listener contestants through a comic review of the week's news.

Trailer for the Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me's live cinecast. May 2nd. from Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! on Vimeo.

Viewers can expect Kasell reading limericks, celebrity guests answering oddball questions, faces made for radio, and an unapologetic focus on heckling the headlines and fawning over the week's infamous foibles as contestants vie for the most coveted prize in all of public radio: a custom-recorded greeting by Kasell for their voicemail.

You hear Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me! every Saturday at 11 a.m. on WRVO and now you can see it live in a theater near you.

We'll be at the Shoppingtown Mall and Destiny USA theaters on Thursday, May 2 at 8 p.m. and Tuesday, May 7 at 7:30 p.m. to join you for the show.

You can purchase tickets in advance or the night of the show.

Feel free to call Leah with any questions about the event at (315) 312-3690 or 800-341-3690.
