The razor-sharp wit of famed stand-up Paula Poundstone will be on full display, 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 broke through in 1990 with her acclaimed HBO special Cats, Cops and Stuff, and was both 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 Special. 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 A Prairie Home Companion live show.

Quotes & Highlights
- The A Cappella Festival was the inspiration for the hit NBC prime-time show The Sing-Off, which has brought even more interest to the art of a cappella singing.
Hosted by Boyz Nite Out
The year was 1995. Bill Clinton was the president of the United States, Tom Hanks won an Oscar for Forrest Gump and Boyz Nite Out had a great time competing in the Harmony Sweepstakes! From that beginning at the sweeps fifteen years ago Boyz Nite Out has had the opportunity to work with artists such as the Righteous Brothers, Michael McDonald, Jay Leno and the late great Ray Charles! They’ve released five full-length albums selling over 20,000 copies in the United States and Japan and have toured extensively throughout the United States performing for festivals, corporate and private events. After 15 years, 400 shows, 12 pitch pipes, dozens of national anthems, jingles and trips from to New York to Spain and from Miami to Marin, Boyz Nite Out is back where it all started.
