What’s a "driveway moment"? It's when you're so captivated by a story on NPR that you stay in your car to hear it to the end - even if you’re sitting in your own driveway. For years, listeners have written to NPR to describe such moments. Some are serious, some are touching, and some, like the stories included here, are very, very funny.
Literate, intelligent, and yes, funny, NPR plays host to the brightest personalities in the comedy world. Scott Simon chats with the resplendent Dame Edna, the outrageous Phyllis Diller, and the extraordinary Lily Tomlin. Juan Williams looks back on the revolutionary career of Richard Pryor. From legends Jonathan Winters, Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner to contemporary favorites Sarah Silverman, David Sedaris and Larry David, here is one collection that will keep you listening with a smile.
