With the exception of that one time. - Paula Poundstone

Another laugh-filled evening of great fun with the star of NPR’s Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me, and one of the funniest stand-up comics working today is on the horizon. Paula Poundstone returns at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 22, 2017, to the Osher Marin JCC. The evening is co-presented by the Other Café Comedy Showcase and The Kanbar Center for the Performing Arts at the Osher Marin JCC.

A Paula Poundstone performance always leaves the audience marveling at her ability to interact with them, and the resulting hilarity. Her ability to be spontaneous with a crowd separates her from other comedians working today and that is what has made her a legend among comics and audiences alike. Interchanges are 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.

It's little wonder people leave her 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.

“At the top of her game…” (San Francisco Chronicle)
“Never been funnier…” (Boston Globe)
"Insightful, thought-provoking humor…” (Chicago Tribune)
