Fresh off the heels of the release of her hilarious new book, THE TOTALLY UNSCIENTIFIC STUDY OF THE SEARCH FOR HUMAN HAPPINESS, comedian Paula Poundstone is entertaining audiences across the country, 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. “On Friday, August 18th, I’ll be at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, NJ. Congress will be in recess, but there will still be jokes,” says Poundstone of her upcoming performance.
Poundstone can be heard regularly on NPR’s #1 show, the weekly comedy news quiz Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me! When asked about Paula, 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.”
