Attending a Paula Poundstone performance will leave you marveling at her ability to interact spontaneously with audience members. In conversations bound to garner riotous laughter. Armed with nothing but a stool, a microphone and a can of Diet Pepsi, Paula’s ability to create humor on the spot has become the stuff of legend.
If you like intelligent, philosophical comedy you’ll love Paula Poundstone. Poundstone, one of the foremost comics working today, draws on her own complex life: three kids, 13 cats, motherhood, a demanding job and crazy travel schedule, her frustration at getting older, and a bag of neuroses, including her famous inability to ever shut up. Poundstone is a regular panelist on NPR’s hit weekly news quiz show, “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me” and was the first woman to win the cable ACE for best standup comedy special, and the first woman to be invited to entertain at the prestigious White House Correspondents dinner.
