Paula Poundstone

Poundstone, one of the foremost comics working today, draws on her own
complex life: three kids, 13 cats , motherhood, a
demanding job and crazy travel schedule, her frustration at getting older, and
a bag of neuroses, including her famous inability to ever shut up. In other
words: she's just like many of us. Part of the fun is watching her engage
various audience members in a humorous dialogue. She manages to gently
make fun of people and some of the nutty things we do without demeaning
anyone. She even manages to handle politics without provoking the pall of
disapproval less artful comics have received. She has a rare talent.
After the show, she'll meet with anyone who wants to meet with her. She
happily signs autographs and poses for pictures. A refreshing anti-celebrity:
warm, gracious, genuine. If you like intelligent, philosophical comedy
you'll love Paula Poundstone. It's an inexpensive night out that will deliver
priceless laughs and memories.

Credits: Poundstone is a regular panelist on NPR's hit weekly news quiz
show, "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me" (winner of a Peabody Award for
Broadcasting excellence). She was the first woman to win the cable ACE for
best standup comedy special, and the first woman to be invited to entertain
at the prestigious White House Correspondents dinner. She is the star of
several HBO comedy specials, appears frequently on the late night talk
shows, and is hard at work on her second book for Random House. She
lives in Santa Monica, Ca with her three children, Toshia, Allison and
Thomas E. Says Poundstone: "Things couldn't be better."
