More Information

Radio IQ Welcomes 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 as a regular panelist 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. "The others cheat," she says magnanimously, "you wouldn't think NPR would put up with that."

The talents of this brilliant humorist extend beyond standup 
comedy, but stop short of yodeling. In 2016 Paula voiced the
 character "Forgetter Paula" in Disney/Pixar's Academy Award
 winning animated feature film, Inside Out. In June 2016, her 
first double‐live CD, "North By Northwest: Paula Poundstone
 Live!" (High Bridge) debuted at #1 on both Amazon's "Hot 
New Releases ‐ Non Fiction" and "Comedy CD" lists. The CD 
was recorded at performances at the Big Top Chautauqua in 
Bayfield, Wisconsin and the Aladdin Theatre in Portland, Oregon. Says Paula, "It's a joyous romp through a field of cheese heads and hipsters." In July this year, Paula appeared on the hit television drama, Major Crimes. She has also done commentaries for CBS Sunday Morning.
