Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! returns to TD Pavilion at the Mann on August 5 for their first show in front of a live audience in 17 months!


Wait Wait… Don't Tell Me! is National Public Radio’s Peabody Award-winning comedy news quiz show. Host Peter Sagal leads a rotating panel of comedians, writers, listener contestants, and celebrity guests through a rollicking review of the week’s news. Contestants vie for the most coveted prize in all of public radio: a custom-recorded greeting by any of our cast members for their voicemail.


Tickets are on sale now via, (800) 982-2787, or the Mann Box Office.
