Product Description

The first Wait Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me! collection focused on the best of the “Not My Job” segment of the program. This second collection skims the cream off the entire archive of the show, with selections from “Who’s Carl This Time?” “Lightning Fill in the Blank,” “The Listener Limerick Challenge,” “Not My Job!” and more.

Panelists include author and humorist Roy Blount Jr., author and radio anomaly Tom Bodett, syndicated advice columnist Amy Dickinson (“Ask Amy”), journalist P.J. O’Rourke, Washington Post columnist Roxanne Roberts, Boston Globe writer Charlie Pierce, comedian Paula Poundstone, and television personality Mo Rocca.


“A dazzling two-hour comedic tour de force.””
