Fans of Garrison Keillor's radio program will love this collection of jokes harvested from his annual Joke Show in April. Sound effects and genuine audience laughter capture the best of the cheerful old-time radio atmosphere. As a comedian, Keillor has a well-honed sense of timing and a facility with the bucolic language of Minnesota, both of which delight his audiences. These tapes would please anyone with a sense of humor or provide a pleasant interlude for listeners of more somber audiobooks.
