How do they make the funny at NPR’s Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me!? Who decides what works? And what do you do about a stripper named Fabio?
KERA videographer Dane Walters and crew were backstage during rehearsals for Wait Wait’s live Dallas show in February at the Winspear Opera House. You can compare the preshow run-through to what aired on the radio. And if you just can’t get enough of the show, you’ll have another chance on May 2, when a special production of Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me hits area movie theaters.
Our thanks to Peter Sagal, Carl Kasell, and the Wait Wait Team for letting us tag along.
