Heralded as one of our country’s foremost comics, Paula Poundstone's quick-thinking, unscripted approach to comedy makes for a great night out. Each show features a unique conversation with someone in the audience -- never mean or done at a person's expense. She even manages to handle politics without provoking the pall of disapproval received by less artful comics. "With the exception of that one time," Paula claims.
She's a regular panelist on NPR's #1 show, the screwball weekly news quiz show Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me! heard Saturdays at 11 a.m. on KSFC 91.9 and again at 2 p.m. on KPBX 91.1.
Her new double-live CD, "NORTH BY NORTHWEST: PAULA POUNDSTONE LIVE!" was recorded at performances in Bayfield, Wisconsin and Portland, Oregon. “It’s a joyous romp through a field of cheeseheads and hipsters,” she says. Her second hardcover book debuts on May 9, 2017.
