According to the official Tanglewood release “Now in its 15th season, the Peabody Award-winning show, “Wait Wait. Don't Tell Me!”, uses current stories (from the global to the ridiculous) for questions and comedy.” Host Peter Sagal, is accompanied by a hilarious and extremely clever ensemble of regulars and guests who make current events into instant comedy while-you-watch. Easily enjoyable for those not already familiar with the show, too -- which makes it a great choice for a group outing.
