Minnesota Public Radio and The Fitzgerald Theater are proud to host Ask Me Another, NPR’s exciting new show featuring puzzles, word games, and trivia played in front of a live audience. Ask Me Another is a co-production of NPR and WNYC.
Ask Me Another is pub trivia, a comedy club and a house concert rolled into one. As host, comedian and storyteller Ophira Eisenberg will take the stage armed with high-concept and hilarious trivia games to keep the show’s band of puzzle gurus, contestants and a crop of notable V.I.P. guests – including author Piper Kerman – on their toes. Plus, house musician and geek-rock icon Jonathan Coulton will provide the show’s spontaneous soundtrack.
The V.I.P. (that’s puzzle-speak for Very Important Puzzler) will be Piper Kerman, author of the bestselling book-turned-TV-phenomenon Orange Is The New Black. The memoir follows Piper’s 15-month sentence in a minimum-security women’s prison in Danbury, Connecticut. Piper’s story has been adapted into the hit TV show with showrunner Jenji Kohan (Weeds) at its helm, and stars Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon, Jason Biggs and Natasha Lyonne. Piper will join Ask Me Another to discuss her book, the show and her work with women’s prisons. Of course, Piper won’t be leaving The Fitzgerald until she has played a trivia game the show’s puzzle gurus have especially cooked up in her honor.
Minnesota’s own resident film buffs, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett, will also join the show, playing head-to-head as special guest contestants. Together with fellow Mystery Science Theater 3000 alum Michael J. Nelson, Murphy and Corbett created RiffTrax, which provides heckling commentaries for all types of movies, from the classic to the terrible.
