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.

Her spontaneity and intelligent humor has made her the perfect panelist for NPR’s Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me, where she matches wits with some of our nation’s leading pundits. Paula was the first woman to win an ACE award for Best Standup Comedy performance and the first woman to be invited to perform at the distinguished White House Correspondents dinner. She has starred in solo specials on HBO and BRAVO, has made frequent TV appearances on all the major talk shows and Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion. She is also an author, lecturer and her editorial pieces can be heard on NPR’s Morning Edition.
Seeing Paula Poundstone is believing she’s the funniest standup comic working today!
