A Prairie Home Companion


"A Prairie Home Companion" is a 2006 American comedy film directed by Robert Altman in his final film. The film is a fictional representation of behind-the-scenes activities at the long-running public radio show of the same name.


A Prairie Home Companion is a live radio variety show created and hosted by Garrison Keillor. The show runs on Saturdays from 5 to 7 p.m. Central Time, and usually originates from the Fitzgerald Theater in Saint Paul, Minnesota, although it is frequently taken on the road. A Prairie Home Companion is known for its musical guests, especially folk and traditional musicians, tongue-in-cheek radio drama, and Keillor's storytelling segment, "News from Lake Wobegon".
