Peter Sagal, host of the humorous NPR quiz show “Wait, Wait … Don’t Tell Me,” will speak at 8 p.m. Friday, April 11, at the Mondavi Center.
Sagal’s radio show, which is aired on radio stations across the country, is heard by more than 3 million listeners weekly, with Sagal’s humorous — and sometimes barbed — commentary prominently featured in a discussion of recent news events.
According to his suitably irreverent biographical sketch, Sagal “attended Harvard University and subsequently embarked on a lively career as a literary manager for a regional theater, stage director, actor, extra in a Michael Jackson video, travel writer, essayist, ghostwriter for a former adult film impresario and staff writer for a motorcycle magazine.”
Sagal’s talk will be followed by a question-and-answer session, moderated by Capital Public Radio’s Nick Brunner.
Ticket prices vary by seat location, and are available at www.mondaviarts.org or 530-754-2787.
Preceding Sagal’s 8 p.m. talk, there will be a free outdoor concert in the Mondavi Center’s Corin Courtyard (by the box office) featuring singer Lauren Cole Norton, who describes herself as “an Irish lass with a taste for Southern swing, old-time and country vaudeville.”
