Quotes & Highlights

Winner of an Emmy Award and the American Comedy Award for Best Female Stand-up
Listen to a clip of Paula Poundstone’s act


Paula Poundstone tells the truth and makes it funny. As she puts it, “I’m just amazed that what I got thrown out of class for, I now get paid to do. The same thing could be said by criminals, I suppose.” She exposes the folly of the recent cigar craze (“I love the smell of cigars. It reminds me of my grandpa just before he died.”) And she ponders the state of children’s books today (“I often wonder if my perpetual sense of impending doom was caused by those Dick and Jane books we were forced to read as kids.”)

Paula Poundstone’s connection to the audience has always been close, interactive and in the moment, resulting in a uniquely intimate rapport no matter how large the venue. “My shows have a feeling of being in the living room with a bunch of friends,” she says. “It’s very conversational. I didn’t do it by design, but now I find it nice. It really forms a relationship with the crowd – plus, there is no physical violence, never any injuries. Well, once in a while the front row will slam dance, but nothing too bad.”
