Paula Poundstone
Heralded as one of our countrys foremost comics, Paula Poundstone's quick-thinking, unscripted approach to comedy makes for a perfect fit as a regular panelist on NPRs #1 show, the screwball weekly news quiz show WAIT WAIT...DON'T TELL ME! where she holds the record for game losses. "The others cheat," she says magnanimously, "you wouldn't think NPR would put up with that."
Paula tours regularly, performing standup comedy across the country. Writes Nick Zaino with the Boston Globe: "You know shes a great comic the way you know any fine performer when you see one -- 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. Paulas interchanges with the audience are never mean or done at a persons expense. She even manages to handle politics without provoking the pall of disapproval received by less artful comics. "With the exception of that one time," Paula claims.
The talents of this brilliant humorist extend beyond standup comedy, but stop short of yodeling. In 2016 Paula voiced the character "Forgetter Paula" in Disney/Pixars Academy Award winning animated feature film, INSIDE OUT.  In June 2016, her first double-live CD, "NORTH BY NORTHWEST: PAULA POUNDSTONE LIVE!" (HighBridge) debuted at #1 on both Amazons Hot New Releases  Non Fiction and Comedy CD lists. The CD was recorded at performances at the Big Top Chautauqua in Bayfield, WI and the Aladdin Theatre in Portland, OR. Says Paula, Its a joyous romp through a field of cheeseheads and hipsters. Paula is also an author. Her second hardcover book (Algonquin Books), will debut on May 9, 2017. An avid reader, Paula is a staunch supporter of our nation's libraries and in 2006 the American Library Association invited her to become the national spokesperson of United for Libraries, a post she holds to this day. United for Libraries is a grass roots support group with members across the country who raise much-needed funds for their local libraries. In July this year, Paula appeared on the hit television drama, MAJOR CRIMES. She has also done commentaries for CBS SUNDAY MORNING.
