Humorist, radio host and author Garrison Keillor‘s Sept. 24 appearance at UGA’s Hodgson Concert Hall has been postponed indefinitely, according to a news release. Keillor is reportedly set to undergo an unspecified medial procedure. 

Keillor, the host of the public radio program “A Prarie Home Companion,” is known for his folksy wit and dry demeanor. The details of his upcoming surgery have not been made public, but Keillor is quoted by the Seattle Times as saying, “I now know more about the prostate than I ever wanted to.”

From the release:

Negotiations are under way with Keillor’s management to reschedule the performance as soon as he recuperates from the medical procedure. Tickets purchased for September 24 will be good for the rescheduled performance.
