It’s been a little over a year since creator and former host of “A Prairie Home Companion” Garrison Keillor wrapped his final episode of the variety radio show, but he’s been busier than ever.

Keillor’s written a screenplay, continues to host literary radio program “The Writer’s Almanac” and has landed a new weekly column with the Washington Post. And now he’s celebrating turning 75 with the “Prairie Home Love & Comedy Tour,” hitting Los Angeles later this month.

We talk with Keillor about his prolific career as an writer, humorist and host of “A Prairie Home Companion,” as well as what he’s up to now.

Garrison Keillor will be in Los Angeles on August 22nd, at the Theatre at Ace Hotel, for his Prairie Home Love & Comedy Tour. For tickets and information, click here.
