Paula 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. On stage, Poundstone is known for her casual style, smart, observational humor, and a razor sharp spontaneous wit. Garrison Keillor described her as "the bravest and best improv comic of our time." A star of several HBO specials, Poundstone was the first woman to share the dais with the President and perform standup comedy at the White House Correspondents Dinner. She is included in Comedy Central's List of the 100 Best Standup Comics of All Time.
