Sagal has traveled all around the country with Wait Wait...Don’t Tell Me! playing to sold-out theaters from Seattle to Miami. As one of the nation's premier radio humorists and commentators on current events, and the host of Constitution USA on PBS, Peter speaks about the intersections of politics, civics, humor and entertainment, and how they all draw from each other to create the American experience. An adept moderator, Sagal is also the perfect emcee, able to apply his quick wit to esoteric company stories, weaving in jokes for an uproarious and unforgettable evening. Whether providing insightful, colorful commentary on current events or a behind-the-scenes peek at the funniest show on radio, Sagal never fails to inform and entertain.
After hosting Wait Wait... for more than 20 years, Sagal knows a thing or two about telling a joke. In a separate program, Sagal looks back at his career to educate audiences on "the art of joke telling." With a decades-long career in making people laugh, Sagal shares what he’s learned about jokes, giving audiences a rare behind-the-scenes look at how he writes and delivers them, and explores why humor is the best way to get a reaction from a crowd.
