“NPR Presents Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!
Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! is headed to Centennial Hall on March 23! Join us as host Peter Sagal leads a rotating panel of comedians, writers, listener contestants, and celebrity guests through a rollicking review of the week’s news.
Every week, Wait, Wait…. Don’t Tell Me! records in front of a live audience, then carefully edits out all the raunchy, inappropriate, shocking, and hilarious stuff so we can broadcast something that doesn’t get NPR in trouble… well, more trouble. The only way you can find out what our panelists and guests really think about the news is to come see for yourself. And please—don’t tell NPR. Also, we’re all much more attractive than we sound.
This event is presented in association with Arizona Public Media.

Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! is National Public Radio’s Peabody Award-winning comedy news quiz show. Host Peter Sagal, along with official judge and scorekeeper Bill Kurtis, 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.
Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! is a co-production of NPR and Chicago Public Radio. The program debuted nationally in 1998 and quickly established itself as a weekend favorite.“
