Seeing Paula Poundstone is believing she’s the funniest standup comic working today!

San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) March 05, 2014

Paula Poundstone draws her material from her own complex life with 3 kids, 2 dogs and 13 cats, motherhood, a demanding job, crazy travel schedule, aging frustrations and a bag of neuroses including her famous inability to ever shut up.

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. Little wonder people leave Paula’s shows complaining that their cheeks hurt from laughter, and debating whether the random people she talked to are “plants” – which, of course they never are.
