Peter Sagal

Fri Nov 30 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm
Grand Ballroom, East Tower
For the past twenty years, Peter Sagal has hosted the NPR news-quiz show Wait Wait . . . Don't Tell Me!, heard by more than 3 million people every week, broadcast on 450 public radio stations nationwide and via a popular podcast. The show received the prestigious Peabody Award in 2008, the same year it celebrated its 10th Anniversary. The hour-long program has captivated news junkies across the country with its lighthearted approach to current events. Mr. Sagal is a noted playwright, author, actor, and essayist.  He also worked as an extra in a Michael Jackson video and a ghostwriter for a former adult film impresario. He is the host of the PBS series Constitution USA with Peter Sagal.  The show follows him as he travels across the country--on a Harley Davidson Road King--to find out where the Constitution lives, how it works, its history and its vital relevance today.
