The sequel to NPR FUNNIEST DRIVEWAY MOMENTS starts out strong, with Joan Rivers reflecting on being a female comedian in the 1960s and using humor to get through the tough times in her life. Robert Krulwich introduces each of these NPR highlights with mock seriousness. Other highlights include Harry Shearer, the voice of the mayor in “The Simpsons,” who does humorous impressions, such as that of a baseball writer describing a game months after it was played. Another high point is news anchor Brian Williams’s guest spot on "Wait Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me!", who tells the audience with satisfaction that he was on vacation when the now-infamous “balloon boy” supposedly took off from his backyard. He also gets teased for his “Bri-Tunes” music blog, inspired by the 7,000 songs on his “Bri-Pod.” A.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2010]
