Anyone who listens to National Public Radio on the regular has accidentally stumbled upon a broadcast of “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!" on Saturday mornings. Full of dad-joke humor, the news quiz show rewards celebrities and listeners alike in ridiculous on-air contests, usually from its home studio in Chicago. But this summer, the show goes on the road, making a stop at Blossom Music Center Thursday, July 18 for a live taping.

While we don't have a list of guests yet, host Peter Sagal is confirmed to be on hand at the mostly outdoor event space.

The program won't make air until Saturday, July 20 on NPR (locally WCPN-90.3 FM and WKSU-89.7 FM).

Although technically co-presented by the Cleveland Orchestra, the event is not included in any summer packages and ticket purchases must be made separately. Prices start at $29 for the lawn and $39 for under the Pavilion, and go on sale April 15. Find tickets, parking passes and all other information at
