Shows

This week on A Prairie Home Companion, it's a joke show compilation with the now legendary "Buzz Off" competition between our sound- effects men Tom Keith and Fred Newman, Andy Stein's latest "Knock-Knock" song, and a slew of blonde jokes, lawyer jokes, Unitarian jokes, puns, groaners and one really good parrot joke (no penguins this time). Southern-fried humorist Roy Blount Jr. takes a break from that NPR show to chime in with a few jokes, Guy Noir tries to find love through a dating service, and Dusty lets the bad jokes fly -- that is until Spike and Big Messer show up. Of course the rest of the gang is here too -- The Royal Academy of Radio Actors to help keep the laughs coming; and The Guy's All-Star Shoe Band to keep the toes tappin'. And if you want to know what happened when the chicken slept under the car, you'll just have to tune in...
