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 evening includes a post performance reception hosted by the South Korean Consulate General.
The first part of the concert will feature two of Korea's foremost traditional performers. Gayageum (zither) master Byung Ki Hwang and choreographer/dancer and National Intangible Treasure in Buddhist dance Aeju Lee, will be joined by other traditional Korean musicians Jeong Seung Kim (daegeum-bamboo flute) and Woong Sik Kim (changgo-percussion) in a program of traditional works and music by Byung Ki Hwang.
The second part, Ritual III is a collaborative work between composer Hi Kyung Kim, multimedia artist Elliot Anderson, Korean dancer Aeju Lee, and creative consultant Tandy Beal. San Francisco's Ensemble Parallele (percussionist William Winant, violinist William Barbini, cellist Jean-Michel Fonteneau, and clarinetist John Sackett), conducted by Nicole Paiement, will be joined by Korean musicians (Jeung Seung Kim on daegeum and Woong Sik Kim on percussion) to perform the third in the series of Hi Kyung Kim's Ritual pieces. These works deal with the topics of death and rebirth, the soul's journey after death, and transformation of the spirit.
