National Public Radio listeners in Orlando have enjoyed a renaissance of in-person appearances in recent years, from David Sedaris and Ira Glass to “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me!” with Peter Sagal. The New York-based quiz show “Ask Me Another,” which is recording at the Bob Carr on Wednesday night, hasn’t been broadcasting on 90.7 FM as long as some NPR favorites, but it’s rapidly attracted fans with host Ophira Eisenberg’s deadpan delivery of the devious puzzles and Jonathan Coulton’s Weird Al-worthy musical clues. Special guests at the Orlando taping will include Dirty Jobs host Mike Rowe, NASA scientist Gioia Massa and NASA landing and recovery director Melissa Jones. The best seats went early to NPR subscribers, but some are still for sale to the general public; snag one so you can impress your friends Groundhog Day-style by knowing all the answers when the episode airs.
