April 9, 2015; Washington, D.C. – Just weeks before his hit AMC show Mad Men comes to a close, Matthew Weiner is teaming up with a whole different set of uncouth New Yorkers. KCLU is bringing Ask Me Another, NPR's and WNYC's Brooklyn-based public radio program, to Southern California next month to tape in front of an audience at the Lobero Theatre in Santa Barbara. Tickets for the event – happening Saturday, May 2, at 7:30PM PT – are on sale now at lobero.com; and amatickets.org. More information is available from KCLU, which broadcasts Ask Me Another each week online and on air.

In Santa Barbara, Ask Me Another will offer audiences an evening of comedy, music, tap-your-pencil-on-your-head trivia, and, with the Mad Men mastermind in the house, libations will be part of the mix of course. As the designated VIP (Very Important Puzzler) on May 2, Weiner will face a round of mind-stirring Ask Me Another trivia prepared just for him and also sit down with Eisenberg for an on-stage interview.

The show that tapes in Santa Barbara will air on public radio stations around the country the weekend of the Mad Men series finale - May 16/17; the episode will be broadcast on KCLU during its regular weekend timeslot – Sundays at 1PM PT and Mondays at 9PM PT.
