Guest host John Lithgow raises the curtain on five funnies, beginning with Dorothy Parker’s hangover from hell in “You Were Perfectly Fine.” Then comic Wyatt Cenac offers up a quirky life story by Simon Rich, “Unprotected,” who also imagines what God would have done on the seven days of Creation if his girl friend had complained, in “Center of the Universe.” More spiritual highjinks from Ron Carlson—could there be a tablecloth of Turin? And Alec Baldwin gives a zesty read of a James Thurber classic, “The Day the Dam Broke.”
