Paula Poundstone's comedic genius is a delightful alchemy of razor-sharp wit and an uncanny ability to improvise with the crowd like a jazz musician. Her unmatched spontaneity has made her a comic legend. "She had the crowd all but collapsing in laughter." - Dallas Morning News.
Austin audiences loved Paula Poundstone so much last year that she’s back at the One World Theatre for an encore performance!
Appearing on stage with a stool, a microphone, and a can of Diet Pepsi, Paula Poundstone's ability to create humor on the spot is legendary. A regular panelist on NPR's popular weekly news quiz show, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me, Paula has been a frequent guest on Letterman, Leno and Garrison Keillor’s, “A Prarie Home Companion.” Paula was the first woman ever to perform at the White House Press correspondents Dinner, and the first woman to receive a cable ACE award for best standup comedy special. She’s starred in several specials for HBO and this year BRAVO debuted her newest standup comedy special, “Paula Poundstone: Look What The Cat Dragged In.”
