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.

- "Amjad Ali Khan may be a master of the sarod rather than the guitar,but once he had built up to the crescendo of his solo set - improvising furiously around the melody line with repeated, rapid-fire playing and then letting his equally frantic tabla player take over - it was easy to see why great Indian music can be as exciting as classic blues and rock." --The Guardian
- "Widely considered to be the greatest sarodist active today, Khan showed immense versatility as well as subtlety." --Washington Post
He was all of six years old, when Amjad Ali Khan gave his first recital of Sarod. It was the beginning of yet another glorious chapter in the history of Indian classical music. Taught by his father and guru, the great Haafiz Ali Khan of Gwalior, Amjad Ali Khan was born to the illustrious Bangash lineage rooted in the Senia Bangash School of music. Today he shoulders the sixth generation inheritance of this legendary lineage. After his debut, the career graph of this musical legend took the speed of light, and on its way the Indian classical music scene was witness to regular and scintillating bursts of Raga supernovas. His two sons, Amaan Ali Phan and Ayaan Ali Khan, each a gifted musician in his own right, will join him in this performance.
