Wigfield is the anti-Lake Wobegon--a desolate home to strip joints, junkyards, and enough soil contaminants to turn newborns into mutants. So naturally, it's the place where clueless journalist Russell Hokes lands when researching the dying American small town in an effort to reach 50,000 words and satisfy a suspicious publisher. The three Comedy Central veterans serve up a full town of oddball characters, showing off their excellent voice skills. The audio version takes on the guise of a genuine essay (such as the recent "If I Live to Be 100"), setting up the listener more easily for laughs. Those who aren't turned off by unrelenting bleakness will find lots of genuine laughs. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
