Ask Me Another
Ask me Another blends brainteasers and local pub trivia night with comedy and music played in front of a live audience. The show is a co-production of NPR and WNYC.
After 11 seasons and many spin-offs, Top Chef judge Gail Simmons has tried a lot of different dishes. "A lot" is actually an understatement. In this podcast extra, host Ophira Eisenberg wanted to know about the worst and the weirdest.
(Rebroadcast, Episode 316) From Milwaukee's Pabst Theater, VIPs Aimee Mann and Ted Leo perform an ode to Brew City. Plus, a tribute to the Happy Days hometown with a round of trivia about other shows that have "jumped the shark."
(Episode 327) Put on some makeup and a wig with John Cameron Mitchell, whose one man show - turned - cult hit film - turned - Broadway extravaganza Hedwig and the Angry Inch won a 2014 Tony for Best Musical Revival. Plus, former contestants return to try to redeem themselves in this “second chances” show.
John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Shortbus) compares the Broadway of yesterday (Hedwig debuted in 1998) to the Broadway of today (Hedwig won four Tony Awards in 2014).
The full episode with John Cameron Mitchell drops Thursday, September 25th, 2014.
The Aristocrats is the dirtiest, most offensive joke in history — an exercise in extremes for both comedians and audiences alike, and famously told by this week's Very Important Puzzler Gilbert Gottfried. Here, Ask Me Another host Ophira Eisenberg tries her hand at a version devised especially for NPR listeners. Still: NSFW.
