Garrison Keillor – 50th Anniversary of Prairie Home Companion

July 29, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

Tickets: $89, $99, $119

The 50th Anniversary Prairie Home Companion show celebrates the Last Live Radio Variety show with an opening video of PHC’s origins in Minnesota and Garrison Keillor’s stand-up on the beauty of being 80.  Comedy sketches include “Guy Noir, Private Eye,” “The Lives of the Cowboys,” “Duane’s Mom,” and “Ruth Harrison, Reference Librarian” with the Royal Academy of Radio Acting with sound-effects wizard Fred Newman.  There will also be a commercial for Powdermilk Biscuits on the subject: Cheerfulness Is A Choice, and a word or two from the American Duct Tape Council, Real Hot Coffee, Guy’s Shoes, and the Ketchup Advisory Board.  Features include Rich Dworsky and the Guy’s Hot Shoe Band playing rags, stomps, and blues, duets with Heather Masse and Garrison Keillor of a medley of love poems and old jokes, an audience sing-along intermission, and the latest News from Lake Wobegon where the women are strong, the men are good-looking, and the children are all above average.
