NPR’s ‘Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me’ Paula Poundstone at The Paramount Theater on Dec. 4

paula poundstoneThe Paramount Theater announced Tuesday that Paula Poundstone will be performing in Charlottesville on Friday, December 4th at 8 p.m.  Tickets start at $32.50 and are available this week.

Thirty-two years ago Paula Poundstone climbed on a Greyhound bus and traveled across the country — stopping in at open mic nights at comedy clubs as she went. A high school drop-out, she went on to become one of the great humorists of our time. You can hear her through your laughter as a regular panelist on NPR’s popular rascal of a weekly news quiz show,Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me.

She tours regularly, performing stand-up comedy across the country, causing Bob Zany with the Boston Globe to write: “Poundstone can regale an audience for several hours with her distinctive brand of wry, intelligent and witty comedy.” Audience members may put it a little less elegantly: “I peed my pants.”

While there is no doubt that Poundstone is funny, the thing that separates her from the pack of comics working today and that has made her a legend among comics and audiences alike is her ability to be spontaneous with a crowd. Poundstone says: “No two shows I do are the same.”

Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me is now the most popular show on NPR, having reached #1 status in 2014.  Listeners can test their knowledge against some of the best and brightest in the news and entertainment  world while figuring out what’s real news and what’s made up. The show is also heard internationally on NPR Worldwide and on the Internet via podcast.
