Garrison Keillor

Two nights ago I had the privilege to attend the kick off show of Garrison Keiller’s gratitude tour. Not only did I get to go, but I was one of ten students that sat behind him on the stage. His staff asked for this, and me and a few other English majors were asked by our professors. Of course we said yes! Having this seat was kind of surreal and kind of nerve wracking. His show was sold out, which meant that I was going to be in a lot of people’s view. Plus, it was an event for the public, which meant that mostly Duluth and the surrounding area’s citizens were there, not students. Once it started and I got to laughing, I relaxed a little bit. As I looked out in the audience I realized that no one was even looking at me. They were all totally fascinated by him, and I couldn’t blame them. He was truly a captivating, talented, homest, and real comedian. But he’s also a writer, and I especially appreciate writers because the writer language has been a huge part of my undergraduate career. I wish I would have known more about him before the show, but one thing for sure is that he’s funny, and having a night of laughter instead of homework was just what I needed!
