The charming, witty, and always-entertaining writer, humorist, and celebrity speaker Garrison Keillor is probably best known for his widely popular radio show A Prairie Home Companion. True to his radio form, humorist celebrity speaker Garrison Keillor shares hilarious anecdotes about growing up in the American Midwest, the people of Lake Wobegon, and "late-life fatherhood." With a wonderful, dry sense of humor, he captivates audiences and delivers with class, charisma, and wisdom.
This is "An Evening with Garrison Keillor", not a production of A Prairie Home Companion.
