NPR's Ask Me Another with Ophira Eisenberg and Jonathan Coulton and guests Brad Bird, Alex Borstein and Dan Savage

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A mash-up of “Jeopardy” meets “Saturday Night Live,” Ask Me Another is NPR’s rambunctious hour of puzzles, word games and trivia that blends your local pub’s trivia night with comedy and music. Host Ophira Eisenberg and house musician Jonathan Coulton challenge in-studio contestants and listeners alike with games that stretch their noggins and tickle their funny bones. And each episode celebrity guests take a turn in the contestant's chair, facing games written especially for them. What you'll hear resembles the casual intimacy of game night at a friend's house: one where scores are forgotten in favor of hilarious gaffes, and the grand prize is a good time. Co-presented by Rooftop Comedy $35 All Ages
