Wayne Newton Added as Guest for Live Taping of “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me”
The wildly popular NPR radio show Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! is coming to the Paris Las Vegas on Thursday, Nov. 18.
Hosted by the one-and-only Peter Sagal along with judge and scorekeeper Carl Kasell, the live taping of the oddly informative quiz program will test your knowledge of current news and off-the-wall information. Featured panelists will include sharp-witted comedian Paula Poundstone, “CBS Sunday Morning” contributor Faith Salie, and HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” humorist Adam Felber along with just added, special guest Wayne Newton.
Tickets are on sale now and start at just $50 and may be purchased online at www.Ticketmaster.com, in person at the Paris Théâtre Box Office, or by calling 1.800.745.3000.
A co-production of NPR & Chicago Public Radio, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! takes a fast-paced, irreverent look at the current news of the world, and the weird. It’s a modern, hilarious twist on the old-time radio quiz show, with featured games including the always popular “Not My Job,” which invites local and national personalities to answer questions that are out – way out – of their area of expertise.
The recording of the Thursday, Nov. 18 performance will air the weekend of Nov. 20 on the 550 NPR member stations nationwide. Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! airs on Nevada Public Radio on Saturdays at 10 a.m. and Sundays at 1 p.m.
