February 20, 2015; Washington, D.C. – The show that's arguably more rambunctious than any other in public radio, NPR's Ask Me Another, is heading to St. Louis for a night of quizzes, games and laughs. The program, which airs weekly on St. Louis Public Radio 90.7, will tape in front of a live audience at The Pageant on Thursday, April 16th. Tickets are available now at ticketmaster.com and amatickets.org.

At The Pageant, host Ophira Eisenberg invites local contestants and the audience to test their wits and brainpower to the tunes of house musician Jonathan Coulton. The night will also feature a special VIP (Very Important Puzzler), who will take on their own custom Ask Me Another challenge. This celebrity puzzle hot seat has previously tested the mettle of children's author Mo Willems; comedian Hannibal Buress; Oscar-winning songwriters for Disney's Frozen, Bobby Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez; actor Ethan Hawke; and co-creator of The Daily Show Lizz Winstead, among others.
Besides the VIP guests, local contestants will also take the stage to compete in a variety of games spiked with trivia, word puzzles, music and pop culture. Would-be-contenders, who think they have what it takes to compete at the show, can apply at amatickets.org.
The show that tapes in St. Louis on April 16 will air on St. Louis Public Radio 90.7 during its regular weekend timeslot – Saturdays at 12PM local time – and on public radio stations around the country. Ask Me Another, a co-production of NPR and WNYC in New York, airs on more than 200 public radio stations each week. All episodes are also available as a podcast and online at npr.org/askmeanother. Visit the show's Facebook page and follow its Twitter account (@NPRAskMeAnother) to learn more.
Since its launch, Ask Me Another's regular gigs, taped in front of an audience at The Bell House in Brooklyn, NY, have become a New York entertainment fixture. The show also tapes in cities around the U.S., and last month made its second appearance at San Francisco's SketchFest comedy festival.
