NPR's and WNYC's Ask Me Another
Rumsey Playfield, off the 5th Avenue and 72nd Street entrance

Puzzlemaster Will Shortz and Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! host Peter Sagal walk into a bar... No, it's not the start of a joke. It's the essence of NPR's and WNYC's Ask Me Another, a rambunctious show that blends brainteasers and local pub trivia night with comedy and music. Host Ophira Eisenberg invites guests and listeners alike to stretch their noggins, tickle their funny bones, and enjoy witty banter and guitar riffs from the Ask Me Another one-man house band, Jonathan Coulton.


Join Eisenberg as she puts questions to a rotating band of puzzle gurus, contestants and special VIP’s (that’s Very Important Puzzlers), who then take a turn in the puzzle hot seat facing trivia games written especially for him or her. What you'll hear resembles the casual intimacy of game night at a friend's house: one where scores are forgotten in favor of hilarious gaffes.


SummerStage attendees can play along as the on stage contestants take a turn in the puzzle hot seat at this special live recording of the famed variety show. Stay tuned for the announcement of Ask Me Another's VIPs!

Time: 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
