With smart, observational humor and a legendary spontaneous interaction with the crowd, Paula Poundstone is one of our country’s pre-eminent comedians. Poundstone improvises like a jazz musician, swinging in unexpected directions without a plan and without a net. There’s a disarming ease in her craft, an immediate sense that she’s so quick on her feet you need never worry about the possibility of something going wrong.

In 1998, when NPR’s popular comedy news quiz show “Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me!” came calling, Poundstone was the perfect fit as one of the pundits on the panel. “Paula Poundstone is one of the funniest human being I have ever known,” said show host Peter Sagal. “Everything she does, thinks, or says is hilarious.”

Poundstone is recognized on Comedy Central’s list of “The 100 Best Standup Comics of All Time,” she won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Standup Comic, and she is included in innumerable lists, documentaries and literary compendiums noting influential standup comedians of our time.
