PHOTOS and AUDIO: It was worth the 'Wait Wait'

After a two-year pandemic delay, NPR's "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!" came to Buffalo Thursday night for a sold-out show at Shea's Performing Arts Center.

The award-winning weekly hour-long quiz program tests your knowledge — and sense of humor — against some of the best and brightest in the news and entertainment world, while figuring out what's real news and what's made up. On the Web, you can play along, too.

Contestants vie for the most coveted prize in all of public radio: a custom-recorded greeting by any of the panel members for their voicemail.

On Thursday, Hosts Peter Sagal and Bill Kurtis led a panel of experts that included Emmy Award-winning VICE News Correspondent and comedian Alzo Slade; best-selling author, nationally syndicated columnist and NPR contributor Amy Dickinson; and Irish actress, comedian and writer Maeve Higgins.

"Wait Wait" airs Saturdays at 11 a.m. and Sundays at 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. on WBFO.
