* Notes *
NPR's Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! was at Cal Performances for two nights on February 8 and 9, 2007. Both performances sold-out. The panelists were Sue Ellicott, Adam Felber, and Paula Poundstone. I attended the second show, which isn't the regular news quiz, but is on history, and will be aired when the show goes on hiatus.
Peter Sagal and Carl Kasell were both as charming as they are on the air. The special guest was Linda Ronstadt, and she was funnier than one might expect, though she did ramble on a few times.
* Tattling *
No cellular phones rang, as we were implored to turn them off before the taping began. There was no intermission, and it was very interesting to hear the differences from this live performance versus the edited 50 minute broadcast.
