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

Professional reviews

"As an ensemble member of Garrison Keillor's "Prairie Home Companion," Sue Scott portrays a variety of outlandish characters. In this compilation of some of her best work, Scott is by turns a passive-aggressive Minnesota mom, an e-book-phobic reference librarian, and a frustrated waitress, among a variety of other characters from some 14 sketches from the public radio program. A gifted and versatile vocal actor, Scott shows great range in voicing characters from all walks of life and with a variety of different accents. Garrison Keillor, Tim Russell, and Tom Keith provide great interplay with Scott's seriously silly characters. It's a fun listen highlighting some of Scott's standout performances. S.E.G.
