Most fun we've had at a theater in some time! He is a real pro, and a great entertainer. Two hours straight, no intermission, never wet his whistle, just 100% him talking (and even singing a bit). Wow!

Garrison Keillor is a modern Mark Twain and a national treasure! The Carpenter Performing Arts Center is a very pleasant theater with plenty of leg room for those of us who are vertically challenged...

What an amazing performance!! He talked nonstop for over 2 hours and barely paused to catch a breath. We loved the show.
