Award-winning comedian Paula Poundstone, known for her distinctive brand of spontaneous observational comedy, returns to the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts! A popular panelist on NPR’s # 1 show, the weekly comedy news quiz, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me, she is heard in 5 million homes across the country as she matches wits with some of the country’s leading pundits. Her new weekly podcast for Maximum Fun, Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone, is a comedy field guide to life.

She has won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Standup Comic, was the first woman to win the cable ACE for Best Standup Comedy Special, the first woman to perform standup at the prestigious White House Correspondents dinner, and was voted into the Comedy Hall of Fame. The queen of the skepticism-fueled rant, Paula Poundstone stands alone in her talent for bursting bubbles and slaying sacred cows.
