With smart, observational humor and a legendary spontaneous interaction with the crowd, Paula Poundstone is one of our country’s pre-eminent comedians. She improvises with a crowd like a jazz musician, swinging in unexpected directions without a plan, without a net. There’s a disarming ease in her craft, an immediate sense that she’s so quick on her feet, one need never worry about the possibility of something going wrong. Widely known for the weekly NPR comedy news quiz show, “Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me,” Poundstone has been described by host Peter Sagal as, “… the funniest human being I have ever known. Everything she does, thinks, or says is hilarious.”
