It's an evening of Selected Shorts you won't hear on public radio. We're showcasing amazing stories that, due to language issues or content advisories, are, well, too hot for radio! Join host Tony Hale and guest actors Paget BrewsterBaron Vaughn, and Mary Lynn Rajskub as they read aloud humorous and saucy stories that are just a little too edgy for that hour on Sunday following Car Talk. Selected Shorts is a radio show and podcast broadcast on more than 150 stations around the country. The series began in 1985 and enjoys sold-out performances to this day. Selected Shorts was conceived with a simple premise: take great stories by well-known and emerging writers and have them performed by terrific actors of stage and screen. Featuring stories around a lively theme, the favorite works of a guest author, or a special collaboration, each Selected Shorts event is a unique night of literature in performance.

Quickly thereafter she joined HBO’s The Larry Sanders Show.
