NPR Live in NYC | Prairie Home Companion and Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!

The massively popular, (and at times, painfully annoying), Prairie Home Companion will be bringing its unique brand of folksy Minnesota storytelling to the Town Hall on April 3, 4, 11, and 17 (Buy Tickets). Though a presale was held earlier in the year, some tickets for those shows are apparently still available. More live PHC information over here.

In other “NPR live” news, the funny and entertaining radio program, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! will be bringing its oddly informative news quiz to New York City on October 22, 2009. Full details, including panel guests, are expected to be announced shortly. [ProductShopNYC.com]

But wait, New York and Chicago aren’t the only places you can catch Peter Sagal and WWDTM this year; check out some more Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! tour dates after the jump.

UPDATE: Tickets for WWDTM go on sale to the general public on September 2, 2009. Tickets should be available through the Carnegie Hall Box Office (212-247-7800) and CarnegieHall.org at that time.

  1. The Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me tickets are not officially announced in any venue in New York City yet. Just tried to purchase through Carnegie Hall, but they don’t have them for sale and claimed they don’t have any information about the event but to check back.

    Where did you find the information?
