Paula Poundstone

Stand Up Comedy
Paula Poundstone has long been considered one of the most original comedians in the business. Legendary for her razor-sharp wit and wry, intelligent humor, she's a master at spontaneous interaction with a crowd. One of Comedy Central's Top 100 Comics of All Time, Poundstone is a popular panelist on NPR's weekly comedy news quiz "Wait, Wait … Don't Tell Me!" Her second book, "The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happiness" (Algonquin Books), debuts on May 9, 2017. Poundstone's new CD, "North By Northwest: Paula Poundstone Live!" (HighBridge), her first double-live, landed atop both Amazon's "Hot New Releases Non Fiction" and "Comedy CD" lists, along with Billboard's "Top Ten Comedy Albums" chart. Poundstone was the first woman ever to host the White House Correspondents' Dinner, she has had numerous HBO specials, starred in her own series on HBO and ABC, and has won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Stand-Up.
