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.

Reviews & Ratings
The Kids In the Hall (Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson) specialize in an irreverent, offbeat, sometimes dark, sometimes ridiculous brand of humor. Their sketch comedy television series aired new episodes on various networks from 1989 to 1994. The Kids take their name from a line comedian Jack Benny often used after telling a joke, “I got this one from the kids in the hall” -- referring to aspiring joke writers who would hang around outside his office. Not long after forming in Toronto in 1984, Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels caught one of their shows and offered a television deal.
Over the course of the show’s run, the Kids were recognized numerous times with nominations for various awards, including an Emmy nomination in 1995. The Kids each went on to successful solo work, but reformed and released the film Kids In the Hall Brain Candy in 1995. They successfully toured in 2000 and 2003.
