An unabashed overload of rapid-fire short jokes, riddles, and funny conundrums, "A Prairie Home Companion's" annual unearthing of classic and modern jokes is a heartening ride through the harmless jokes of childhood and somewhat more risqué adult material. Never shooting more than a meaningful glance at anything off-color, this bounty of humor should delight audiences of most ages. If you don't mind a bit of over-earnest delivery and some occasionally creaky material, this audiobook is for you. Well-timed rim shots, percussive punctuation, and performers up for almost anything make this a comedy vitamin for the depleted soul. D.J.B.
