Paula Poundstone is known for her smart, observational humor and a spontaneous wit that has become the stuff of legend. This weekend Poundstone will be in Galveston at The Grand Opera House.
Time magazine, in the March 2020 “Best of” issue, listed Paula’s HBO special, Cats, Cops and Stuff as one of The 5 Funniest Stand-Up Specials Ever. Paula can be heard weekly as the host of Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone, the comedy podcast. She is a regular panelist on NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! Paula was the first woman, in its then 73rd year, to share the dais with the President and perform standup at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Also an author, Paula’s second book, The Totally Unscientific Study Of The Search For Human Happiness, was one of eight semi-finalists for the Thurber Prize for American Humor, the highest recognition of the art of humor writing in the United States. The audio book was one of five finalists for the AUDIE award for Audio Book of the Year.
Paula is the star of several HBO comedy specials and she was the first woman, in its then 7th year, to win the Cable ACE award for Best Stand-up Comedy Special. She is also an American Comedy Award winner for Best Female Standup Comic, and she continues to be recognized in innumerable lists, documentaries and literary compendiums noting influential standup comedians of our time.
With nothing but a microphone, a can of Diet Pepsi and her witty imagination, stand-up comedian Paula Poundstone makes her debut at The Grand! She’s appeared on multiple late-night talk shows, released 2 highly-acclaimed books, and has been named one of “Comedy Central’s Top 100 Comics of All Time,” amongst a myriad of other awards..
