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.
Put on some makeup and a wig with John Cameron Mitchell, who recently took over the leading role in his one man show - turned - cult hit film - turned - Broadway smash hit, Hedwig And The Angry Inch (which won the 2014 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival). Plus, former contestants return to try and redeem themselves in this "second chances" show (Rebroadcast, Episode 327).
Grab a Corpse Reviver and perform a Shining Wizard with your Thimblerigger (Why do the names of cocktails, wrestling moves, and old-timey occupations sound so alike?). Then get loud with North Carolina local John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats as he explores the heart of death metal.
(Rebroadcast) Brush up on your British slang with Andy Serkis (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Lord of the Rings), who talks about getting into the mind of Caesar the ape, reveals the origin of Gollum's creepy voice, and teases us ever-so-slightly about his upcoming role in Star Wars VII.
What do you think is "the worst"? Let comedian and top-notch ranter Lewis Black (The Daily Show) tell you what he thinks is the worst, from child beauty pageants to soy lattes to Donald Trump. Plus, sing pop songs with the grammatical tendencies of Cookie Monster, and a certain R. Kelly hit becomes "Me Believe Me Can Fly."
