As some of you know, I’ve been incredibly fortunate to join the cast and crew of Wits. Wits is a radio show, recorded live at the beautiful Fitzgerald Theater in downtown St. Paul, MN. It’s in the tradition of Prairie Home Companion, sort of, in that it’s a radio show with music, comedy, and nostalgia, although the nostalgia is maybe less wistful Americana and more geeky-hipsterish.
Anyway — the lineup for the spring season has been announced, and it is ridiculous. RIDICULOUS:
3/15 Paula Poundstone with Robyn Hitchcock
3/29 W. Kamau Bell with Brendan Benson
4/12 Kristen Schaal with Rufus Wainwright
4/19 Tig Notaro with Kathleen Edwards
4/25 Michael Ian Black with A.C. Newman
5/3 Patton Oswalt with Ben Lee
5/10 Rob Delaney with Neko Case and Kelly Hogan
5/31 Colin Hanks with Jason Isbell
6/7 Hannibal Buress with Open Mike Eagle
6/14 David Koechner with Metric
The biggest perk of being in the house band is I get to make music with most of these amazing artists — needless to say I’m pretty excited. You can read more about the show and buy tickets here.
