Fresh on the heels of the release of her hilarious new book, THE TOTALLY UNSCIENTIFIC STUDY OF THE SEARCH FOR HUMAN HAPPINES, Poundstone is entertaining audiences around the country and leaving them complaining that their cheeks hurt from laughter and wondering if the random people she talks to are plants. Of course, they never are.
Poundstone can be heard regularly on NPR’s #1 show, the Peabody-award winning weekly comedy news quiz Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! When asked about Poundstone, Wait, Wait host Peter Sagal replied, "Paula Poundstone is the funniest human being I have ever known. Everything she does, thinks, or says is hilarious. She is made of funny. If you chopped her into bits, each piece would be hilarious. (But don’t.) Air becomes funny having been breathed by her.”
In addition to her regular appearances on Wait, Wait, Poundstone is now readying the launch of her own, brand-new weekly podcast – LIVE FROM THE POUNDSTONE INSTITUTE – which is set to premiere on June 20th, 2017. Joined by a live and lively audience, Poundstone takes on the research studies that are so odd they just beg for someone to stand up and say “wait, what?!” The podcast is being produced by NPR and is recorded in Los Angeles.
On stage, Poundstone is known for her casual style, smart, observational humor, and a razor sharp spontaneous wit that has become the stuff of legend. Garrison Keillor described her as “the bravest and best improv comic of our time.”
