“Paula Poundstone is the funniest human being I have ever known. Everything she does, thinks or says is hilarious. If you chopped her into bits, each piece would be hilarious. (But don’t.)” – Peter Sagal, host, “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!”

On Saturday, June 10, KPCC was proud to present an evening with Paula Poundstone as one of the country’s preeminent comics takes the stage at UCLA’s Royce Hall for a night of razor-sharp wit and spontaneous interactive comedy.

Poundstone is a regular panelist on NPR’s weekly news quiz “Wait Wait...Don’t Tell Me!” and an author whose latest book, “The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happiness,” is slated for release on May 9, 2017. She has anchored her own comedy specials on HBO, has guested on all the late-night talk shows, voiced a character in the feature film “Inside Out,” done commentaries for “CBS Sunday Morning” and won an American Comedy Award for best female stand-up. Poundstone also tours regularly, performing stand-up comedy across the country.

Audiences joined us for this special evening with Paula Poundstone, whom Garrison Keillor referred to as “the bravest and best improv comic of our time.”
