An Evening with Paula Poundstone

Paula Poundstone is a humorist, author and comedian known for her clever, observational humor and spontaneous wit. When she isn’t collecting hotel soaps while on tour or panel-ing on NPR’s #1 show, Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!, Paula hosts the popular podcast, Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone.  

Her television appearances include The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Last Call with Carson Daly, Late Show with David Letterman and HBO specials. Famously, Paula provided backstage commentary during the 1992 presidential election on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and was the first woman to host the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. 

Paula can be heard on the big screen as “Forgetter Paula” in Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out. She has also starred in her own series on both HBO and ABC, is included on Comedy Central’s Top 100 Comics of All Time and won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Stand-Up. In February 2019, Paula’s stand-up special, Cats, Cops and Stuff was named by TIME Magazine as one of The 5 Funniest Stand-Up Specials Ever.

Net proceeds for this event go to support local youth charities and Rotary International’s charitable projects worldwide.
