Paula Poundstone
Add to your calendar
Date: August 11, 8:00 pm
Location: Center for the Arts Crested Butte
Details: 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. The Boston Globe said, “Poundstone improvises with a crowd like a Jazz musician … swinging in unexpected directions without a plan, without a net.” Paula created her own show, The Paula Pounstone Show on ABC where her interactions with the crowd became the stuff of legends. Additionally, Paula has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with David Letterman, A Prairie Home Companion, and HBO for which she won a Cable ACE awards for Best Standup Comedy Special. Her off-kilter sensibility and impeccable timing makes her a perfect fit for NPR’s program, Wait Wait...Don’t Tell Me.
