“[Radio] actors Sue Scott and Tim Russell’s...roles in the show's signature [comedy sketches] are some of the funniest and most memorable moments in [A Prairie Home Companion].”
-Kitty Felde, radio personality, “Talk of the City”

Each week on A Prairie Home Companion, Tim Russell and Sue Scott (with a lot of help from Garrison Keillor and sound effects men, Tom Keith or Fred Newman) perform well-loved characters, such as Barb and Jim from The Catchup Advisory Board, Dusty and Lefty from Lives of the Cowboys, and any other character you've heard on Guy Noir, Radio Private Eye.

The Radio Show's Voice Actors

Tim Russell and Sue Scott are the voice actors behind the characters of Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion, a nationally broadcast radio show heard weekly by 4.5 million listeners on over 558 public radio stations. When radio listeners see this popular show performed live, many are shocked that Tim Russell and Sue Scott—“just two actors”—perform the voices of many of their favorite characters.
