Paula Poundstone, NPR Star & One of the Funniest Stand-Up Comics Working Today, Comes to the Osher Marin JCC for One Night of Great Comedy, Saturday, May 17, 2014 at 8:00

San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) March 05, 2014

Paula Poundstone draws her material from her own complex life with 3 kids, 2 dogs and 13 cats, motherhood, a demanding job, crazy travel schedule, aging frustrations and a bag of neuroses including her famous inability to ever shut up.

Attending a Paula Poundstone performance will leave you 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, Paulas ability to create humor on the spot has become the stuff of legend. Little wonder people leave Paulas shows complaining that their cheeks hurt from laughter, and debating whether the random people she talked to are plants which, of course they never are.
