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.

The Bay Area’s unique vocal harmony competition, the Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival, presents its Bay Area Regional event hosted by last year’s Champions, jazz group Moodswing. This year’s competing groups include Dis Moi, HouseBlend, Ro Sham Bo, One of Each, UnderAge, The Blanks and 2004 Regional Champions Clockwork, who are returning for another shot at the title. The Blanks are a serious vocal threat; the group has a reoccurring role on TV's "Scrubs" as "Ted's Band," and one member is also a regular on "Desperate Housewives" (which fact may or may not have anything to do with singing ability). Equally noteworthy are UnderAge, the 2005 "International Young Women in Harmony Rising Star Champions" of the Sweet Adelines International Organization.
