Puzzlemaster Will Shortz and Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! host Peter Sagal walk into a bar... No, it's not the start of a joke. It's the essence of NPR's and WNYC's Ask Me Another, a rambunctious show that blends brainteasers and local pub trivia night with comedy and music. Host Ophira Eisenberg invites guests and listeners alike to stretch their noggins, tickle their funny bones, and enjoy witty banter and guitar riffs from the Ask Me Another one-man house band, Jonathan Coulton.
Join Eisenberg as she puts questions to a rotating band of puzzle gurus, contestants and special VIP’s (that’s Very Important Puzzlers), who then take a turn in the puzzle hot seat facing trivia games written especially for him or her. What you'll hear resembles the casual intimacy of game night at a friend's house: one where scores are forgotten in favor of hilarious gaffes.
SummerStage attendees can play along as the on-stage contestants take a turn in the puzzle hot seat at this special live recording of the famed variety show. The night’s VIP’s include singer/songwriter Nellie McKay, New York Times Crossword Puzzle Editor Will Shortz, host of WNYC’s Studio 360 Kurt Andersen, comedian and director David Wain and NBC’s The Office alum B.J. Novak.
