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. As The Boston Globe
raves, "Poundstone improvises with a crowd like a jazz musician ... swinging in unexpected directions without a plan, without a net." 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 Cable ACE award for Best Stand-Up Comedy performance. 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 Prairie Home Companion
