Paula Poundstone is known for her smart, observational humor and a spontaneous wit that has become the stuff of legend.

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! This year Paula was inducted into the SiriusXM Comedy Greats Talent Hall of Fame. Her comedy is included in the National Comedy Museum and she continues to be recognized in innumerable lists, documentaries and literary compendiums noting influential standup comedians of our time.
