[Story]

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.

What is a Driveway Moment? Maybe it’s happened to you as it has to countless others. . . . You’re driving home, listening to a story on NPR. Suddenly, you find yourself in your driveway (or parking space or parking garage). Rather than turn the radio off, you stay in your car to hear the piece to the end. It’s a Driveway Moment. The NPR Driveway Moments Series collects these “best of” stories so that you are never more than a “play” away from a Driveway Moment.
