Paula Poundstone is the star of NPR’s “Wait Wait¬Â¦Don’t Tell ME” and HBO comedy specials. See why everyone is saying she is the funniest standup comic working today!

“At the top of her game” raved the Boston Globe about Paula Poundstone in performance. Little wonder – Poundstone can regale and audience for several hours with her distinctive brand of wry, intelligent and witty comedy.

Paula is playing TWO back-to-back shows at the Aladdin Theater this Saturday night and while the first show is sold out, you can still get tickets to the second show (9:30 PM) HERE!

    this would be a true larger than life itself experience, Paul Pondstone LIVE at the Alladin theater, I wonder if she is aware of the history of the venue? But, really thats just a thought, I am getting to the point and the point is (drum roll Please) I NEED A LAUGH and tickets!!! So whatcha gonna do? PICK ME and you will have very good luck too.

  11. Garrett January 26, 2012 at 11:02 am #

    Need a laugh and live down the street from the Aladdin…Best way to end the week is laughing.

  12. Tory January 26, 2012 at 11:16 am #

    I love Paula. I’ve been a fan since The Paula Poundstone Show which I use to have on tape but the tape got destroyed by a mysterious white mold. I had the Fall Preview of TV Guide with its detailed listings preview page stapled to my bedroom wall along with a number other programs from that season. I was an odd kid.

  13. Amy B. January 26, 2012 at 11:18 am #

    We’d love to go because we have six kids and could use not only a date night, but a HILARIOUS date night!

  14. Lorelei January 26, 2012 at 11:43 am #

    This would be fantastic to see! I’m such a fan, but can’t afford the tickets. I’ve also never seen a show at the Aladdin, and what a great show to see!

  15. becky brown January 26, 2012 at 11:48 am #

  18. Sandy January 26, 2012 at 12:59 pm #

    My husband and I would love a nice night full of laughs!

  19. Jandroid January 26, 2012 at 1:17 pm #

    It would be a sin for a native Portlandian to miss Paula’s show.

  20. kathy rankin January 26, 2012 at 2:26 pm #

    I’d like to win so I can.take my grouchy husband and she can make him laugh! Then I think he’d be in a better mood and I might get lucky! She could make reference to of the venue. That IS where deep throat was shown for years does she know that.? LOL

  21. Brad January 26, 2012 at 3:08 pm #

    I have never seen an NPR show

  22. Lisa January 26, 2012 at 3:09 pm #

    “Wait, Wait..” is a highlight of our weekend each week! This would be a fun show!

  29. Dian January 26, 2012 at 4:23 pm #

  30. April January 26, 2012 at 4:25 pm #

  35. Stefanie January 26, 2012 at 4:46 pm #

    This would be such an excellent early Valentine’s gift for my partner! We love PP on Wait! Wait! Thanks for the chance to win.

  36. BenU January 26, 2012 at 4:55 pm #

    I love Paula on NPR, but I honestly know her first as Brendan Small’s mom on Home Movies (Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim). Kinda obscure part of her career to hold on to, but for some reason I will always think of her as Paula Small first. It would be awesome to see her in person after listening to her for years.

  37. Cory January 26, 2012 at 4:58 pm #

    She is frickin Hilarious!!!!!!

  38. Kate January 26, 2012 at 4:59 pm #

    she’s a riot! the 28th is my boyfriends birthday, give us tickets please!!!

  39. John January 26, 2012 at 5:13 pm #

    Wait , Wait I know the answer to this question!! No I guess I don’t.

    Peole need to be smart on this NPR show and Paula adds more since she is also funny (unlike me at times.). So maybe I could learn to be funnier if I can see her this weekend. Pleaseeeeeeee?

  40. Julie January 26, 2012 at 5:15 pm #

    I am SUCH a huge fan. I’m moving on Sunday, so getting out on Saturday and de-stressing via humor is just what I need! Thanks. :-)

  41. Mark Clark January 26, 2012 at 6:22 pm #

    Paula! Give us some Paula!it is my buddies birthday, but that happens every year. A chance to see Paula doesn’t come nearly as frequently.

  42. steadycat January 26, 2012 at 6:40 pm #

    Her show is on my birthday–let’s feel the love!

  43. jimbobber January 26, 2012 at 6:50 pm #

    I would LOVE to win these tickets just because I LOVE Paula Poundstone!

  44. Ed January 26, 2012 at 6:50 pm #

    We can make it to the late show and represent. Paula and Portland….Purrrfect together.

  45. Katie January 26, 2012 at 7:14 pm #

    Oohh, Paula is my favorite panelist on wait wait!

  46. Mark Wales January 26, 2012 at 7:23 pm #

    I would be totally stoked, and “sick” at work to see her show. Wait, wait, please pick me! I am so excited she is coming to the theater. It is right in my neighborhood. And I want them to call my phone. I would be a great contestant!

  47. Aulani Johnson January 26, 2012 at 7:30 pm #

  61. Azephead January 27, 2012 at 7:45 am #

  65. Julie January 27, 2012 at 10:27 am #

    She’s funnier and more interesting than most everybody!

  66. Brenda January 27, 2012 at 2:20 pm #

    Because she is SO much funnier and smarter than that Amy chick who fills in for her on wait, wait…we need a Paula fix to get us through all her NPR absences.
