As its name suggests, this is yet another radio show. But here’s a reason to tune in: it’s a mad blend of live skits, comedy, wacky interviews and the regular appearance of Portland favorites. The weekly variety show is created in Portland and broadcast on dozens of stations. And while getting caught up via podcast is easy – all episodes are archived on iTunes – for a true multisensory experience, check out their live shows.
The show is taped live at regular performances every Wednesday at Mississippi Studios. It’s hosted by Luke Burbank (Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me, Too Beautiful to Live) and is a high-energy, interactive show that often involves playful audience questions. The show is generated in roughly 11 days, making them tightly-written, daringly funny and fast-paced. Expect to be surprised!
The guest list and themes change show to show. Individual tickets start at $20 advance/$25 day of show, with discounts available for certain demographics. For more information, a full season schedule, and show tickets, check out Live Wire Radio’s website by clicking the Book It! button.
