One of the most prolific American storytellers of all time, Garrison Keillor is coming to the Webb Center on November 30 at 7:30 pm.
Best known for his live, internationally syndicated radio variety show, A Prairie Home Companion, the humorist shares hilarious anecdotes about growing up in the American Midwest, the people of Lake Wobegon, and late-life fatherhood. True to his radio form, Keillor brings a wonderful, dry sense of humor, and unique charm to the stage for an evening of new insights on love, nostalgia, and daily life.
One of America’s most beloved radio hosts and acclaimed humorists, Garrison Keillor was born in 1942 in Anoka, Minnesota, and began his radio career as a freshman at the University of Minnesota, from which he graduated in 1966. He went to work for Minnesota Public Radio in 1969, and on July 6, 1974, he hosted the first broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion in St. Paul. Four million listeners tuned in weekly, on more than 600 public radio stations coast to coast to listen to the tales of Lake Wobegon. Keillor has been honored with Grammy, ACE, and George Foster Peabody awards.
