Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

She’s a regional treasure and a national pleasure. With Tim Russell, she’s half of the non-Garrison Keillor actors on public radio’s A Prairie Home Companion. A vocal talent without compare, Sue Scott can be anyone she wants.

This CD collects the best of Sue Scott so far, as if such a thing were possible. Here’s Sue as Ruth Harrison, Reference Librarian, foe of e-books. As a waitress named Vi. As devastatingly beautiful yet somehow insecure supermodel Cynthia Maxwell. As NPR’s senior national correspondent, Linda Wertheimer (with apologies to the real Linda Wertheimer, a good sport). Here’s Sue as private eye Guy Noir’s sometime girlfriend, Sugar. As Berniece, supportive wife to an artist named Bob. As mother to a gullible son named Duane. As a blonde. As a bird. As Lulu Lane, radio star.

Here’s Sue Scott, radio star, in 14 sketches and bits heard over the years on live broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion. All seriously silly.

Synopsis:

A Prairie Home Companion’s Sue Scott takes center stage in this collection showcasing the range and talent of this vocal artist and comedic actor extraordinaire.

Synopsis:

"She speaks fluent prairie."--New York Times

Sue Scott has taken her talents from the stage to the airwaves doing "funny voices on the radio" with A Prairie Home Companion since 1992. A vocal talent without compare, at any moment she can be garrulous, gracious, sassy, sinful, prim and proper, worldly and wise.

Sue Scott: Seriously Silly collects the best of Sue Scott so far, as if such a thing were possible. Here's Sue as Mom calling her beleaguered son Duane. As Ruth Harrison, Reference Librarian, with her black belt in biblio-kwon-do. As devastatingly beautiful supermodel Cynthia Maxwell. As private eye Guy Noir's faithful ex-girlfriend, Sugar. As an NPR correspondent. A waitress named Vi. A blonde. A bird. Berniece. Radio starlet Lulu Lane, and more.

Here's Sue Scott in 14 sketches, bits, and send-ups heard over the years on live broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion. All seriously silly.
