Prairie Home Companion meets a modern who’s who of American writers and poets. This audio features comedic sketches from NPR’s Prairie Home Companion from Dave Barry, Billy Collins, Robert Bly, Allan Ginsberg and Calvin Trillin. The audio is two discs long that should have been edited down to one really good disc. A highlights reel if you will.
I got a kick out of the “Secret Society of English Majors." They are everywhere. They are your waiter, bartender and fast food server. Enjoyed the noir parody “Guy Noir: Private Eye” with the twist of being bigger than the Mob and more connected. Reducing Shakespeare’s famous plays down to mere minutes is also amusing.
