Paula Poundstone is one of our country’s pre-eminent comedians. With smart, observational humor and a spontaneous interaction with a crowd that has become the stuff of legend, she swings on stage like a Jazz musician. Without a plan. Without a net. There’s a disarming ease in her craft, an immediate sense that she’s so quick on her feet you need never worry about the possibility of something going wrong.

Poundstone is the star of several HBO specials. Her razor sharp wit and impeccable timing makes for a perfect fit as a popular panelist on NPR’s #1 show, the weekly comedy news quiz, Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me! When asked about Paula, Wait, Wait host Peter Sagal replied, “Paula Poundstone is the funniest human being I have ever known. Everything she does, thinks, or says is hilarious.” Audience members often leave her shows complaining that their cheeks hurt from laughter and wondering if the random people she talks to are plants. Of course they never are. Paula is known for never doing the same show twice.
