Heralded as one of our country’s foremost comics, Paula Poundstone’s quick, unscripted approach to comedy makes for a perfect fit as a regular panelist on NPR’s #1 show, the screwball weekly news quiz show WAIT WAIT…DON’T TELL ME! She holds the record for the most game losses. “The others cheat,” she says magnanimously, “you wouldn’t think NPR would put up with that.”
Paula tours regularly performing standup comedy across the country. Writes Nick Zaino with the Boston Globe: “You know she’s a great comic the way you know any fine performer when you see one — there’s a disarming ease in her craft, an immediate sense that she’s so quick on her feet you need never worry about the possibility of something going wrong.” Paula’s interchanges with the audience are never mean or done at a person’s expense. She even manages to handle politics without provoking the pall of disapproval received by less artful comics. “With the exception of that one time,” Paula claims. The talents of this brilliant humorist extend beyond standup comedy, but stop short at yodeling.
