The Wits host has gained a passionate national following thanks to his unique sense of humor, seemingly endless supply of pop-culture trivia, and his quick, um, wit.
This week, Moe's first book, Dear Luke, We Need to Talk. Darth., hit shelves, packed with essays and pop-culture correspondences that include an oral history of the Pac-Man ghosts, a court-ordered letter from Dora the Explorer's mother, and of course Darth Vader's unsent letters to Luke Skywalker (hence the title of the book). In addition to his big literary release, this Friday Moe will host the season finale of Wits at the Fitzgerald Theater, which will also be the show's 50th installment.
We managed to steal a few minutes from his busy schedule this week to talk about his new book, his favorite and least favorite Wits guests, and boat explosions.
