Paula Poundstone to Perform at Cabaret Theatre, 4/26
by BWW News Desk - Apr 11, 2014

Treehouse Comedy Productions in conjunction with Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT will present comedian Paula Poundstone Saturday, April 26th at the Cabaret Theatre. 25 years ago Paula Poundstone climbed on a Greyhound bus and traveled across the country -- stopping in at open mic nights at comedy clubs as she went. A high school drop-out, she went on to become one of the great humorists of our time. You can hear her through your laughter as a regular panelist on NPR's popular rascal of a weekly news quiz show, Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me. She tours regularly, performing standup comedy across the country, causing Bob Zany with the Boston Globe to write: 'Poundstone can regale an audience for several hours with her distinctive brand of wry, intelligent and witty comedy.' Audience members may put it a little less elegantly: 'I peed my pants.' (more...)
