Tuesday, May 5 –
If you’re not already a fan of Keillor, you may recognize his name, or his voice, from his long career in radio, as an author and humorist. Beginning his career as a radio host for Minnesota Public Radio in 1969, Keillor would go on to secure more than 4 million listeners on more than 600 public radio stations. As a writer, he’s contributed his fiction to The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly and National Geographic. His books include Lake Wobegon Days and Leaving Home: A Collection of Lake Wobegon Stories. You may also have heard him in his character Guy Noir, a detective on his radio show A Prairie Home Companion. During his career, he has accepted Grammy, ACE and George Foster Peabody awards. On Tuesday, May 5, his personality will shine on stage rather than through the radio when he arrives at Tulsa’s Brady Theater. Tickets are $39.50 and $59.50, and the show begins at 8 p.m. For more information, visit www.bradytheater.com.
