Heralded as one of our country’s foremost stand up comedians, Paula Poundstone is known for her quick-thinking, unscripted approach to comedy.
As a regular panelist on NPR’s #1 weekly news quiz show, Wait…Wait Don’t Tell Me! she holds the record for game losses. She was also a recurring guest on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor.
Her HBO special, Cats, Cops and Stuff won the Cable Ace Award for Best Standup Comedy Special — the first woman to ever receive that award. Her second HBO comedy special, Paula Poundstone Goes To Harvard was the first time the elite university allowed their name to be used in the title of a television show.
She recently released her second book,The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happiness, and she is the host of a popular weekly podcast, where she explores various topics of interest.
Paula is included in Comedy Central’s list of 100 Greatest Stand-Ups Of All Time.
