Paula Poundstone is a humorist, author and comedian known for her clever, observational humor and spontaneous wit. When she isn’t collecting hotel soaps while on tour or panel-ing on NPR’s #1 show, Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me!, Paula hosts the popular Maximum Fun podcast, Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone. Nobody is a comedy field guide to life complete with taste tests, cats of the weeks and leading experts in everything from beekeeping to ping pong to prosopagnosia (say that 3 times fast).

Paula’s stand-up credentials are endless: Cats, Cops and Stuff; Goes to Harvard; Look What the Cat Dragged In; and numerous television appearances including The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Last Call with Carson Daly and Late Show with David Letterman. Famously, Paula provided backstage commentary during the 1992 presidential election on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and was the first woman to host the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

In 2017, Paula released her second book, The Totally Unscientific Study Of The Search For Human Happiness, in which she offers herself up as a guinea pig in a series of thoroughly unscientific experiments. Kirkus Reviews called the book, “A deeply revealing memoir in which the pathos doesn’t kill the humor—delivers more than it promises.” The book debuted at #1 on the Amazon Bestsellers List in Humor, and the audiobook was one of the five finalists for 2018 Audio Book of the Year. The book was recognized as one of eight semi-finalists for the Thurber Prize for American Humor, the highest recognition of the art of humor writing in the United States.

  3. Mary Rose Walker January 7, 2020 at 12:20 pm #

    Oh awesome! I hope I win these. I love Paula Poundstone and I listen to Wait Wait while I run. Aside from loving Paula and her many cats, I am also excited to see one of my favorite radio personalities in the flesh. When their voices are so familiar to you, it’s so cool to put a face to those silky silky tones!

    • Mark & Suzanne January 10, 2020 at 1:34 pm #

      I will win this. It is done. Thank you!

    I could use a chuckle. This winter weather is so dreary.

  16. Rhiannon January 7, 2020 at 4:23 pm #

    I would love to win these tickets. As a fellow cat-lady and an avid “Wait, Wait …” fan, Paula brings me so much joy!

  17. amy harris January 7, 2020 at 7:23 pm #

    First time I saw Paula Poundstone she teased me and my date mercilessly as we sat in the front row. Now we are married 26 years – Would be so funny to go back to see her again.

  18. Marie B. January 7, 2020 at 10:07 pm #

    I’ve been a fan of hers since the ‘80s and would love the chance to see her live! I hope they give her a good chair in the green room for her Twitter feed. :) Thanks for the chance to win!

  19. Tonya January 8, 2020 at 7:20 am #

    Love Paula Poundstone!

  20. Kelly January 8, 2020 at 10:48 am #

    I love Paula- and would be incredibly excited to see her live!

  21. Chris Webb January 8, 2020 at 11:58 am #

    Wow! Trailblazing stand up comedian!

  22. John January 8, 2020 at 12:53 pm #

    Sounds like a great date night!

  23. Tim January 8, 2020 at 1:14 pm #

    Never seen her live but love some of her old shows we saw on TV

  24. Siobhan January 8, 2020 at 3:09 pm #

    I’ve been listening to Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! since the beginning in 1998, and always look forward to Paula Poundstone being on the panel. It became a weekly tradition to have the show on during weekend breakfasts in the house. It would be a dream to see her own comedy show live.

  25. Eryn January 8, 2020 at 3:24 pm #

    Would love to laugh my way into the new year with Paula!

  26. David January 8, 2020 at 4:55 pm #

    because it will just across the street from where I live, It would be a shame if she was this close and I couldn’t see her.

  27. Laura January 9, 2020 at 7:29 am #

    Depression is a killer. Been struggling to get through my days, but often listening to Paula be her funny self has helped lift me out a bit at times.

    I’d love to see her live!

  28. Richard Peet January 9, 2020 at 1:19 pm #

    Having been laid off from work…I can use some laughter in my life!

  29. Katrina January 9, 2020 at 3:32 pm #

    Yes, I would like to laugh, please!

  30. AJ January 9, 2020 at 4:08 pm #

    Please Paula me (and a lucky friend)!

  31. Mary M Barrett January 9, 2020 at 4:17 pm #

    I love her! Would be so happy with a ticket!

  32. Chandra G January 9, 2020 at 4:38 pm #

    Paula Poundstone! I kept missing her in the past. Maybe this year, I’ll get to go.

  33. Shadow Rose January 9, 2020 at 6:29 pm #

    I’m sure this would be a great show. I’m ready to laugh!

  34. Denise Olsen January 9, 2020 at 6:43 pm #

    I love her voice!

  36. Heidi January 9, 2020 at 8:53 pm #

    Paula always does a NYE show down in SF, and I always thought it would be fun to attend, but I’ve never managed to make it. Maybe this is the time and place!!

  37. Jonas Trekas January 9, 2020 at 11:07 pm #

    Paula is so cute and smart. I’d like to see her.

  38. Lianne Racanelli January 10, 2020 at 5:46 am #

    I am a lover of good stand-up comedians. Paula Poundstone is classic! Would love to see her, she definitely makes me laugh

  39. Suzanne Fox Gatewood January 10, 2020 at 9:09 am #

    We never miss Paula when she is on Wait Wait. I love how she always questions the “studies show” stories… I would love to see her stand up.

  40. Stephanie B January 10, 2020 at 10:14 am #

    Paula is the best. She makes Wait, wait as good as it is. I want to touch her jacket.

  41. Anna January 10, 2020 at 1:02 pm #

    Laughter is great for date night!

  42. SW January 10, 2020 at 2:55 pm #

      • Ariana Berry January 22, 2020 at 5:54 am #

        This is a lot of peer pressure to tell you I’m dying of depression or old age or want. I am not dying. I am, however, interested in these tickets. Thank you.

  54. Hannah January 14, 2020 at 5:18 pm #

    I would enjoy the heck out of this.

    Everyone I know loves this lady. How fantastic to see her and not just hear her.

  74. James January 21, 2020 at 1:34 pm #

    She is consistently funny. Not an easy thing to do.
    Thank you!

  75. Cody Pitz January 21, 2020 at 1:36 pm #

    My girlfriend turns the show on EVERY time we are in the car – she would be floored if we could go!

  76. Mauraborealice January 21, 2020 at 1:50 pm #

    She is a hoot! So “ballsy”!

  77. Jeff January 21, 2020 at 2:07 pm #

    Would love to see her perform her comedy in person. Have never been to REV HALL

  78. Judith O Smith January 21, 2020 at 3:19 pm #

    I saw her show down in Sonoma County and want to give these to my daughter and son in law…

  79. Neal Spinler January 21, 2020 at 4:03 pm #

    I want to win because I try every week to get on Wait Wait and I never get picked! I’ll get her to be the voice on my voicemail so this would be as close as I could get.

  80. Emily January 21, 2020 at 5:24 pm #

    So there for some Paula.

  81. ML Monroe January 21, 2020 at 7:52 pm #

    I’ve listened to Wait, Wait… for years. I love the mix of folks on it. Paula Poundstone is my fave! Her POV is unique, she’s quick with her quips and she’s one of the funniest people on the planet. I laughed my way through her book The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happiness. Besides, with a cancer diagnosis, I may not get another chance to see her.

  82. Bobbie January 21, 2020 at 10:39 pm #

    Did I mention that I’d really like to see this?

  83. Bobbie January 21, 2020 at 10:39 pm #

    Did I mention that I’d really like to see this?

  84. Kelly January 22, 2020 at 5:39 am #

    I’d love to see my favorite podcast host/guest. One of the wittiest comics working today.

  85. Bob January 22, 2020 at 8:30 am #

    She cracks me up!

  86. James Tiefenthaler January 22, 2020 at 11:22 am #

    Sounds funny

  87. James Tiefenthaler January 22, 2020 at 11:23 am #

    Win win…please tell me I did

  89. Andy Gospodnetich January 22, 2020 at 5:51 pm #
