Appearing on stage with a stool, a microphone, and a can of Diet Pepsi, PAULA POUNDSTONE is famous for her razor-sharp wit and spontaneity. Audience members often leave complaining that their cheeks hurt from laughter.
In 2009 she released her first comedy CD: I HEART JOKES: Paula Tells Them In Maine, 60 minutes of the smartest comedy recorded live - because as Paula says, "It's very hard to do it any other way."
The Boston Globe said about Paula, "Poundstone improvises with a crowd like a Jazz musician…swinging in unexpected directions without a plan, without a net." Her off-kilter sensibility and impeccable timing made her a perfect fit for NPR's "oddly informative", weekly news quiz program, "Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me,".
