“Paula Poundstone is the funniest human being I have ever known. Everything she does, thinks, or says is hilarious. If you cut her into bits, each piece would be funny.” – Peter Sagal, host of NPR’s Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me!

With smart, observational humor and a legendary spontaneous interaction with the crowd, Paula Poundstone is one of America’s most loved comedians on stage, television, and radio. She improvises with a crowd like a jazz musician, swinging in unexpected directions without a plan, without a net, never predictable, and always funny!

Paula has starred in several HBO specials and her own series, The Paula Poundstone Show on HBO and ABC, and has been a long-time panelist on NPR’s most highly rated show, the weekly comedy news quiz Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me! Along with the release of her second book, The Totally Unscientific Study Of The Search For Human Happiness, her recent television appearances include Late Night with Stephen Colbert, CBS Sunday Morning, Major Crimes, Carson Daly, Nerdist with Chris Hardwick, and Weekend Edition.

Come to the Clark Center for an evening of laughs with one of the wittiest and most influential comic voices of the last two decades!

In the meantime, enjoy Paula’s new weekly podcast for Maximum Fun Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone, a comedic field guide to life. Paula and her co-host Adam Felber, fellow panelist on Wait, Wait.., bring on leading guests and use their unique comedic sensibility to help us navigate life in the 21st century.
