Big Shots

On this show, stories to make you laugh at the absurdity of it all.

Description

As the rollup to the Presidential elections continues, we offer two stories about big shots, presented by guest host Jane Curtin. First, classic humorist James Thurber imagines what happens when an aviation hero has feet of clay. "The Greatest Man in the World” is read by Michael Ian Black. And former President Bill Clinton makes a cameo appearance in Meera Nair’s warmly funny tale of a village in Bangladesh about to be rescued from "centuries of obscurity.” "A Warm Welcome to the President, Insh'Allah!” is performed by Aasif Mandvi.
