NPR Funniest Driveway Moments: Radio Stories That Won't Let You Go Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Selected from the National Public Radio archives, these stories by some of NPR's favorite commentators will keep listeners laughing.

A "driveway moment" is 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. Some are serious, some are touching, and some, like the stories included here, are very, very funny.

Literate, intelligent, and droll, each tale is worth hearing again and again, and now you don't have to stay in your car.

NPR Funniest Driveway Moments includes stories and interviews from your favorite NPR commentators and guests such as David Sedaris, Sarah Silverman, Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Dame Edna, Larry David, Darryl Littleton, Justice Stephen Breyer, Jonathan Winters, Phyllis Diller, Steve Martin, Lily Tomlin, and more.

Synopsis:

You're in your car, listening to a story on your local NPR station. Suddenly, you find yourself at your destination—home, work, or parking lot of a grocery store. The story has captured you, and rather then turn the radio off, you stay in your car and listen to the end. You've had a Driveway Moment!

Literate, intelligent, and yes, funny, NPR plays host to the brightest personalities in the comedy world. 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.
