    Paula Poundstone continues to amaze us with unforgettable sold-out performances as our audiences continue to clamor for her next return to our stage. A master of observational comedy for which she’s known, Paula is a rare comedic talent that can engage her audience with witty impromptu dialogue and produce rapturously roaring results. Each one of Paula’s shows is completely unique and unrepeatable. She can cleverly poke fun at someone without demeaning her comic target. Paula is warm and genuine—a true anti-celebrity!

    Paula is known for her smart, observational humor and a spontaneous wit that has become the stuff of legend. Time magazine, in the March 2020 “Best of” issue, listed Paula’s HBO special, Cats, Cops and Stuff as one of The 5 Funniest Stand-Up Specials Ever. Paula can be heard weekly as the host of the comedy podcast, Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone and as a regular panelist on NPR’s comedy news quiz, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!

    Also an author, Poundstone’s second book, The Totally Unscientific Study Of The Search For Human Happiness (Algonquin 2017) was one of eight semi-finalists for The Thurber Prize for American Humor, the highest recognition of the art of humor writing in the United States. The audiobook was one of five finalists for the Audio Book of the Year AUDIE award.

    Paula was the first female comic, in its then 73rd year, to perform at the White House Correspondents dinner. She was the first female standup, in its then 5th year, to win the ACE award for Best Comedy Special on Cable television. She is recognized in innumerable lists, documentaries and literary compendiums noting influential standup comedians of our time.
