Tim Meadows, Paul F. Tompkins named as part of Wits' all-star lineup

Now in its third year, Minnesota Public Radio's Wits series takes lively banter, mixes it up with some musical guests, then throws in a little audience participation. The radio show, which is hosted by John Moe, invites comedians, actors, and authors to the Fitzerald Theater, and encourages them to riff on topics that range from hilarious to esoteric. Past guests have included Neil Gaiman, Susan Orlean, and Patton Oswalt.

The lineup for the 2012 spring season of Wits has been announced, and once again includes a solid group of performers, including Bobcat Goldthwait, Aimee Mann, and Tim Meadows. Check out the complete list after the jump.
