Lewis Black and friends will tape a radio pilot tomorrow in New York City. News Quiz USA, hosted by Black and featuring comedians Kathleen Madigan, Todd Barry, Ted Alexandro and radio host Andy Borowitz will be a politically charged panel show, wherein the quartet will opine on current events and pop culture. The show is a spinoff of the original British version, produced by the BBC. The pilot episode will air on the UK’s Radio 4 on Thursday as part of the station’s coverage of the U.S. presidential election.

If all goes well, the show — taped in front of a live audience — will become a recurring feature on Radio 4, at least through the end of the election. There’s even talk of having the show available as a podcast for stateside listeners. The pilot tapes tomorrow at 7 pm at the Greene Space. Not surprisingly, tickets are sold out.
