Item Description

Looking to spice up your voicemail message but tired of waiting for your chance to win Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me? Well you're in luck - the hilarious comedian and Irish Rep Company Member Maeve Higgins will record a personalized voicemail message for you! She'll even include a signed copy of her new book, Tell Everyone on This Train I Love Them!

Maeve Higgins is an Irish comedian, actress, and author. She is a regular panelist on NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me and has performed all over the world, including in her native Ireland; Edinburgh, Scotland; Melbourne, Australia; and Erbil, Iraq. Maeve is a contributing writer for The New York Times and the host of the hit podcast Maeve in America: Immigration IRL. She is also a co-host of Neil deGrasse Tyson's podcast and television show, "StarTalk," and the climate justice podcast "Mothers of Invention" and has appeared on Comedy Central’s "Inside Amy Schumer."

Tell Everyone on This Train I Love Them is a deeply funny, moving, and urgent writing about a country that can feel broken into pieces and the light that shines through the cracks. As an eternally curious outsider, Maeve Higgins can see that the United States is still an experiment. Some parts work well and others really don’t, but that doesn’t stop her from loving the place and the people that make it. With piercing political commentary in a sweet and salty tone, these essays unearth answers to the questions we all have about this country we call home; the beauty of it all and the dark parts too.

Item Special Note

The book will be delivered to the winner of this item.

Exact content of the voicemail message will be at the discretion of Maeve Higgins.
