"We end up with a script that’s about 30 pages long and as soon as we get on stage
and put the panelist on stage and certainly the 'Not My Job' guest,
and sometimes the listeners, everything goes off the rails.
And we want it to! It’s a weird process where we prepare a lot to be spontaneous."
— Peter Sagal

Wait Wait Don't Tell Me: More Famous People

Listen to a sample: Actor Jeff Bridges Plays "Not My Job"

Billy Collins, U.S. poet laureate from 2001 to 2003, plays a game called, "I can feel it coming in the air tonight," in which he responds to questions about musician Phil Collins. Al Gore tries to match his former boss’ mastery of the My Little Pony children’s show in a game called "Maybe you can beat Bill Clinton at this." Olympian Jackie Joyner-Kersee rhymes with "cursy," so she is invited to play a game called "May Thunder Blast Your Head!" about curses from around the world. Of course. Also featuring Erykah Badu, Tony Danza, Jack Gantos and Jeff Garlin.

Panelists Alonzo Bodden, Tom Bodett, Brian Babylon, Luke Burbank, Amy Dickinson, Adam Felber, Peter Grosz, Kyrie O’Connor, P.J. O’Rourke, Paula Poundstone, Roxanne Roberts, Mo Rocca and Faith Salie offer plenty of comic highlights as host Peter Sagal and "official scorekeeper" Carl Kasell guide their esteemed guests through unpredictable moments under the intense heat of public radio’s glorious spotlight.
