David Sedaris is great. He's an occasional guest on the radio show "This American Life," produced at public station WBEZ, in Chicago. I don't know if reading him would be as good as hearing him read.
You gotta hear him read. I'll PM you the program link.
A Prairie Home Companion, yes. I remember the show back in the 80's, when Cargill was the sponsor. I would listen to the live broadcast Saturday night, and then again the re-broadcast on Sunday morning, after breakfast. The Adventures of Buster, the Show Dog. That's where I first gained an appreciation of country music, i.e., Emmylou Harris. I read a piece he wrote in response to a listener a while back, who asked him why he doesn't do shows in Canada. He wrote a scathing reply, citing the irritatingly officious behavior of Canadian customs officers.
