Spend New Year's Eve laughing at the razor-sharp wit of famed stand-up Paula Poundstone as she slices and dices her way through an evening of keen cultural commentary. Famed for a quick mind that always manages to come up with the perfect quip, Poundstone is a master of riffing off the crowd. It's also why she's the perfect panelist for NPR's Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me!, where she's featured alongside some of the nation's leading pundits. She's the first woman to be invited to perform at the White House Correspondents' dinner and the first woman to win a CableACE award for Best Stand-Up Comedy performance. Still knocking them dead as a headliner, Poundstone released her latest comedy disc, I Heart Jokes: Paula Tells Them in Boston, in April 2013, and has recently toured as part of The Prairie Home Companion live show.

There are always good laughs at West Coast Funnies. The last comedian on the show was phenomenonally funny, Brian Kiley. I would definitely see him again. I am not so fond of the skits, so I rated it a 4, but it is well worth your time for the featured comedian and some of the other comedians.
