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.

I also wanted to see this show for the last time was at SF State and after alway performed at Palace of Fine Arts. So it was almost 15 years, and my friend never seen this kind of show. She perfer singing and acting, and I had to remind that this was dancing culture entertainment. She very conservation and never experience anything. I hope she will open her eyes more and be less stressful. I enjoy it alot and travel out of US before, so dancying is so enertainment and seeing the costumes and learning about the cultures alway amazing to me. Love it and keep up the hard week.
Quotes & Highlights
- "What other city in the world has anything like the San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival?...I heartily envy the Bay Area residents." --The New York Times
Devoted to nurturing the work of Northern California dancers, this year marks two new highs: the debut of a record 26 world premieres—almost twice as many as in previous years—and the commission of a record four new works, including a Mexican Bicentennial Tribute created by acclaimed choreographer Zenón Barrón and featuring dancers from six local companies. In addition to these exciting performances, audiences will enjoy many companies that have never before appeared at the festival.
