oPaula Poundstone is one of our country’s pre-eminent comedians. She improvises with a crowd like a Jazz musician, swinging in unexpected directions without a plan, without a net.  Poundstone’s razor sharp wit and impeccable timing makes for the perfect fit as a regular panelist on NPR’s #1 show, the weekly comedy news quiz, Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!


Paula is also an author.  Her second book, the critically acclaimed, The Totally Unscientific Study Of The Search For Human Happiness (Algonquin Books) landed at #1 on Amazon Best Sellers lists in humor in Hardcover, Audible and CD. The audio book, read by Poundstone, was one of five finalists for Audio Book of the Year.  Paula voiced the character “Forgetter Paula” in Inside Out, winner of the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

Paula, who is recognized on Comedy Central’s list of The 100 Best Standup Comics of All Time is currently on tour and will make a stop at the Missouri Theatre on Saturday September 7th at 8:00 p.m.
