Description
Even more of a good thing: the latest collection of knee-slappers, toe-tappers, and groaners from "A Prairie Home Companion "Joke Shows.


Did you hear the one about the paranoid dyslexic? He always thought he was following someone. . . . Why did ancient Romans close down the Coliseum? The lions were eating up the prophets. . . .


Jokes are made for sharing, and everyone loves to laugh. This nonstop collection gathers the best jokes from four Joke Shows including the two most recent (3/8/2008 and 11/1/08), all recorded before live audiences at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul. Performers include show regulars Garrison Keillor, Sue Scott, Tim Russell, Tom Keith along with special guests. There s music from the Guy s All-Star Show Band, a Guy Noir sketch, a Ketchup sketch, and an unforgettable performance of The Sound of Chickens, a song that bears an uncanny resemblance to the Simon & Garfunkel classic The Sound of Silence. Except it really is about chickens, and while The Sound of Silence is dead serious, this version is just plain silly. ( And in the naked light I saw/Ten thousand chickens maybe more . )


So it s everything fans want and expect: good jokes, good music, and a pretty darned good time.
