Presented by the Rainbow Recovery Center, a program of the Whatcom Counseling and Psychiatric Clinic

It’s impossible to attend a Paula Poundstone performance without marveling at her ability to interact spontaneously with audience members in conversations bound to garner riotous laughter. Armed with nothing but a stool, a microphone and a can of Diet Pepsi, Paula’s ability to create humor on the spot has become the stuff of legend.

Paula’s razor-sharp wit makes her a perfect fit as a regular panelist on NPR’s popular weekly news quiz show, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me (2008 winner of the prestigious Peabody Award for Broadcasting Excellence). Her first book, There’s Nothing in This Book That I Meant to Say (with foreword by Mary Tyler Moore), is out in paperback and now available on audio, and she is hard at work on her second one. Paula’s commentaries have been heard on NPR’s Morning Edition and her blogs appear on The Huffington Post and 23/6 as well as the NPR Opinion page.

Paula was recently inducted into the Comedy Hall of Fame. Chief Archivist of the Hall said she was unanimously chosen because “her wit, insights, intellect, and fantastic capacity to improvise helped to set the bar for all artists in stand-up in the modern era.” Simply put, no history of comedy can be told without Paula’s voice.
