He lives in New York and eats heartily whenever he travels.

From AudioFile

On or around April Fool's Day each year, Garrison Keillor and friends share dozens and dozens of "pretty good jokes"--old chestnuts and new, knock-knock jokes and riddles, puns and chicken-crossing-the-road jokes--yuks, shtick, and flashbacks to childhood giggles. On the other hand, this is not all kid stuff--some sexual innuendos may not be appealing to all families. Some of the ethnic humor may offend the terminally politically correct listener, but then again lawyers and politicians are all fair game here, too. Enjoy this pastiche of two years' live shows--and lighten up. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Format: Audio Cassette
This is a compilation of two of Prairie Home Companion's famous joke shows. The single cassette is filled with about an hour of rapid-fire, mostly short jokes. Content varies from fun but silly knock knock jokes and puns, to more adult topics such as doctor, lawyer, light bulb, and relationship jokes. Nothing too bold or dirty, just some old fashioned fun with at least a few memorable one-liners for everyone. A nice mix of rolling eye groans and belly laughs. I often had to rewind to catch the joke that was proceeding during my laughter at the previous one.

Using the style of old-time one liners that just keep you laughing and the interaction of musical introductions, this CD keeps you laughing.
Keillor draws on his usual subjects, Norwegians, "Olly and Lena", jokes that could apply to any ethnic group for some of the time, but the 3rd grader jokes are especially funny and useful for a family "uplifter". Some are groaners, some slapstick style, but all are funny, even if you heard them before.
A good buy!

Format: Audio CD
This 2-CD set is a collection of jokes from the Prairie Home Companion radio shows. Mostly, these are series of one-liners, such as Knock-knock jokes, How many (insert category of people) does it take to change a lightbulb type jokes, and various puns. However, there are also a few longer sketches, such as one focused on cowboys and another involving a competition among their sound-effects guys. There was also a delightful Film Noir sketch about a guy with a new-fangled security alarm system on his office door.

I wasn't sure how much I'd like the CD collection. I usually like Prairie Home Companion, but only in small, sporadic doses. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I listened to the CDs while stuck in awful traffic on the way to work this morning, and found myself frequently laughing out loud. For fans of gentle, fairly wholesome, mostly G or PG-rated jokes with no foul language, give this CD set a try. It certainly saved me from road rage today!

We purchased this set of Kieller's Joke programs because we like jokes and they help while away the time while traveling. No matter how many times we listen to one of these CDs -- just about every trip -- they still keep us in stitches, making the most boring trip a pleasure. While other CDs are cycled in and out of the car, this set remains.
