One of the most recognizable comics touring today, Paula Poundstone has had audiences in stitches for over 25 years. You can hear her as a regular panelist on NPR’s popular rascal of a weekly news quiz show, Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me. No two performances are the same with this comedienne – and her ability to interact with, and mine audiences for hilarious material is unmatched. Most impressively, none of her humor comes at anyone’s expense, making participating in Poundstone’s show something people WANT to do. In the early 90’s she was the first female to win the cable ACE for Best Standup Comedy Special and the first female to perform standup at the prestigious White House Correspondents dinner where she joined the current President as part of the evening’s entertainment. Paula has starred in comedy specials on HBO and BRAVO, won an Emmy Award, and is an occasional editorial for NPR’s All Things Considered. She is recognized as one of Comedy Central’s 100 greatest stand-ups of all time. She’s received an American Comedy Award for Best Female Standup Comic, and in 2010 was one of a select group voted into the Comedy Hall of Fame.
