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.
