Laugh With Paula Poundstone at NJPAC
Spend a hysterical evening with Paula Poundstone on Friday April 12, 2019, a regular panelist on NPR's popular Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me! and a long-reigning queen of the stand-up stage, known for her smart, observational humor and spontaneous wit.
In addition to her own stand-up specials on HBO, Poundstone makes frequent guest appearances on top television programs, including The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Star Talk with Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Late Night with Carson Daly. She also appears on Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone, a weekly podcast on Maximum Fun, co-hosted by Adam Felber, her friend and fellow panelist on Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me!
Poundstone's second book, 2017's The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happiness, debuted at No. 1 on the Amazon Humor bestseller list. As an actress, she voiced the character of "Forgetter Paula" in Disney/Pixar's Oscar-winning animated feature, Inside Out, and currently provides the voice of Paulette in Cartoon Network's new series, Summer Camp Island.
