Ascension Events Inc. Presents:

An Evening With Paula Poundstone

Heralded as one of our country’s foremost comics, Paula Poundstone’s quick-thinking, unscripted approach to comedy makes for a perfect fit on NPR’s #1 show, the screwball weekly news quiz show Wait Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me!, where she holds the record for game losses. In May 2017 Paula’s first book, The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search For Human Happiness,” was released to glowing reviews. “A deeply revealing memoir in which the pathos doesn’t kill the humor,” wrote Kirkus Reviews. “A crack writer of uncommonly hilarious observations . . . smart, sweet, and laugh-out-loud funny balm for exceedingly stressful times.”  In 2016 Paula voiced the character Forgetter Paula in Disney/Pixar’s Academy Award-winning feature film Inside Out. But it is in her live shows where her comic bulb shines the brightest. Her live shows are a reflection of her witty interaction with the audience—no two shows are ever the same. “There’s a disarming ease in her craft, an immediate sense that she’s so quick on her feet, you need never worry about the possibility of something going wrong,” writes Nick Zaino of The Boston Globe.

This is an independent event promoted by a renter of the facility. Any comments or opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the opinions or policies of Mount Baker Theatre.
