    Le Show is a program of satire, humor, and commentary about the week's news. Comedy sketches written and performed by multi-talented multimedia artist Harry Shearer, interwoven with an eclectic, ever-changing blend of music; from world to pop, soul to jazz. Shearer says about Le Show, "I do it because I don't do standup, and I don't do sitcoms, and the radio broadcast enables me to do what I think is funny in a broadcast medium without having to listen either to network executives or Canadian producers."

    David says: "Overpriced!"
    "Best thing on radio"
    Overall

    I can't think of a better radio program. It is funny, but I feel like in a one-hour-a-week show with music and humorous entertainment there is still more news than a week of a 24-hour news network would provide. Unfortunately, for some of the news on the show, this is the only place to get it, since "in depth news coverage long since went the way of the dodo. While there is some opinion, and that may be off-kilter from the mainstream, it is never "shrill."

    Harry Shearer is not afraid to point out when the right or the left "have no clothes."

    caveats:
    I sometimes fast-forward over some of the musical selections and occasional replays of recorded bits, but the consistent level of writing and performance has no equal. The pacing of the show is comfortable, but if the audience expects a high volume "morning zoo" kind of a show with lots of jokes about flatulence or only appreciate the ubiquitous narrow political commentary up and down the dial, maybe they should stick with what they find more easily digested.

    Long live free speech!
