Peter Sagal, host of Wait Wait, Don’t Tell Me!


When Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me! debuted in 1998, it was considered a weird curiosity, a very silly "news quiz" nestled in the schedule of an otherwise serious news organization. Now, it's arguably the network's second biggest weekend show, after Car Talk. Peter Sagal, host of Wait Wait, joined us to discuss dirty jokes, Gene Simmons and the show's first ever live cinema event. Wait Wait Live is playing tonight at movie theaters across America.
