Fresh on the heels of the release of her hilarious new book, THE TOTALLY UNSCIENTIFIC STUDY OF THE SEARCH FOR HUMAN HAPPINESS (available now wherever books, ebooks and audio books are sold), comedian Paula Poundstone is entertaining audiences around the country. Heard regularly on NPR’s #1 show, the Peabody-award winning weekly comedy news quiz Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!, as well as readying the launch of her own, brand-new weekly podcast – LIVE FROM THE POUNDSTONE INSTITUTE, Poundstone is known for her casual style, smart, observational humor, and a razor sharp spontaneous wit that has become the stuff of legend.
A star of several HBO specials and her own series on ABC and HBO, Poundstone was the first woman to share the stage with the President and perform standup comedy at the White House Correspondents Dinner in its then 72-year history. She is included in Comedy Central’s List of the 100 Best Standup Comics of All Time, and is an American Comedy Award-winner for Best Female Standup Comic.
