A Prairie Home Companion 50th Anniversary

Wobegoners, front and center!

The 50th Anniversary Prairie Home Companion is a 140-minute show celebrating the Last Live Radio Variety Show. Don’t miss the opening video of PHC’s origins in Minnesota, and Garrison Keillor’s stand-up on the beauty of being 80.

Comedy sketches: Guy Noir, Private Eye; The Lives of the Cowboys; Duane’s Mom; Ruth Harrison, Reference Librarian – all with the Royal Academy of Radio Acting featuring sound-effects wizard Fred Newman. An extended commercial for Powdermilk Biscuits on the subject: Cheerfulness Is a Choice. Also a word or two from the American Duct Tape Council, Real Hot Coffee, Guy’s Shoes, and the Ketchup Advisory Board.

There’s Rich Dworsky and the Guy’s Hot Shoe Band, rags and stomps and blues. Duets with Heather Masse & Keillor of a medley of love poems & 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.
