Guy Noir is a fictional private detective regularly featured on the public radio show A Prairie Home Companion. Voiced by Garrison Keillor, the character parodies the conventions of hardboiled fiction and the film noir genre. Guy Noir works on the twelfth floor of the Acme Building in a city that "knows how to keep its secrets", St. Paul, Minnesota. The first Guy Noir segments aired in 1995 and were heavy on tongue-twisters, alliteration and other wordplay

Written by Garrison Keillor. Narrated by Walter Bobbie.

Written by Garrison Keillor. It's a dark night in a city that knows how to keep its secrets, but high above the mean streets, a light burns on the 12th floor of the Acme Building, where Guy Noir-hard boiled, world-weary, yet surprisingly articulate-is trying to find the answers to life's questions. In his big swivel chair under the bare bulb beside the beat-up gray file cabinet, he awaits the call of his clientele: the disappointed, the paranoid, the embittered, the rejected-and the hilarious.

by Garrison Keillor (Author), Walter Bobbie (Performer). While I do enjoy much of Keillor's other works, nothing comes close to the Guy Noir series. You'd think that after listening to this tape 2 or 3 times that one would tire of it. Quite the contrary.

Guy Noir Created by Garrison B. Keillor. It was Valentine's Day in Minnesota. Guy appears in a series of radio sketches by nice guy Garrison Keillor, along with Walter Bobbie and the rest of NPR's Prairie Home Companion cast, a radio show that's been on since, as Guy puts it, "Jesus was in the third grade. Still, the skits, which range from a few minutes to close to a quarter of an hour, are generally good-natured fun, complete with all the expected cracking wise, surreal plot twists, bad/great puns and guns going off all over the place that you've come to expect from any private eye spoof worth its fedora and office bottle.

Keillor is very good, with an accent that could have come out of a ’30’s movie, as are the other players. The sound effects are great, giving the ambiance that comes only with well-produced radio drama. This production is a treat and makes one want to hear further adventures of Guy and his cronies.

I love PHC and Guy Noir. Does anyone remember (or know where I can get) the St. Patrick's Day show he recorded in Dublin, Ireland? The Guy Noir skit on that broadcast was high-larious.

This particular collection is a 9-track running joke. It has its standout moments with fantastic feats of alliteration in a couple tracks and the old fashioned sound effects are fun . . . but, as another post here says, it gets less funny as it goes along.

The essence of comedy is brevity and most of these skits take too long. I recall the Guy Noir skits I heard on the radio being shorter, much more varied and having a bigger cast with more fantastic stories. Most of these tracks just drag on as if by taking longer to get to the punchline the same old shtick will become funnier; mostly, it doesn't work. Unless you're a real die-hard fan completing your PHC collection, this CD is a monotonous disappointment.

The Guy Noir episodes are simply hilarious. Keillor and his crew have absolutely outdone themselves. After getting this tape as a gift several years ago, I ran out and bought everything else Keillor I could find. While I do enjoy much of Keillor's other works, nothing comes close to the Guy Noir series.
You'd think that after listening to this tape 2 or 3 times that one would tire of it. Quite the contrary. Every time I hear this tape I like it more. My only lament is that it isn't available on CD. Actually, I'm purchasing my 4th copy since I've lent the last three to friends who keep on conveniently forgetting to return them.
I saw other reviewer's fault the performance for having the same endings... they just didn't get it. It's the fact that practically all the episodes come to the same conclusion that makes it so funny. In fact I've laughed so hard that I came down with a case of Loon throat...

This is early Guy Noir. it is highly repetitive and not nearly as clever as the episodes produced in recent years.

This was okay, but not nearly as good as the second CD. This one is tiresome with its repetition of the same incidents, which I do not want to mention as it would spoil the CD for anyone who chooses to buy it. If you haven't tried the Guy Noir CDs yet, I recommend the second one, which is a set of two CDs. The second release is both varied and hilarious.

This is the best collection. The only thing I didn't like is that they only put 8 of the 9 original recordings on this disc. The funniest of all, Chautauqua, was missing. Other than that, I could not be happier with this purchase!

This first collection of "Guy Noir" routines, lifted from A Praire Home Companion, are very funny. Garrison Keillor and his merry band of actors give a sense of the old time radio drama? with these. The sound effects are excellent and the theme is pretty cool. Both series are great. I wish they'd lift more of them to create a few more series.

I laughed until I cried at the second Guy Noir book on CD. This one has some great moments too, but is not as consistently funny as the second. I still would recommend it to Garrison Keillor fans - he is a genius at comedy and anything else he chooses to do.
This was different from the Guy Noir episodes on Prairie Home Companion, and I didn't enjoy it as much.
