What the Critics Say

"Le Show is one of the best shows on modern radio." (Entertainment Weekly)
"In the long nightmare that is America in the late 20th century, no one has given voice to the worst in all our natures better than Harry Shearer. His rants are funny, and his depth of knowledge on certain matters, from digital TV to Lewinskygate, is impressive." (San Francisco Chronicle)

The smartest, funniest thing on the radio

Harry Shearer is one of a kind. He is smart, funny and a gifted voice actor. His special features (Apologies of the Week, Tales of Airport Security, etc)are not to be missed. All this and a political consciousness and encyclopedic mind that beats any mainstream "yack show" host. The skits of the 2 Bush Presidents (41 and 43)and associates are hysterical. Then there's his musical selections; from Sinatra to stuff you will hear nowhere else are icing on the cake. This is the best thing on radio!

There's a reason it's free...

Smug, "uber"-chic condescension mixed with shrill political rhetoric. Difficult to listen through, not only because of the content, but also because of the awkward presentation. Sort of an "audio-blog", where style and presentation take a back seat to the notion that it doesn't cost you anything (other than time) to listen to.
