An Evening with Paula Poundstone

The fabulously hilariously funny star of NPR’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me” returns to the JCC

The Kanbar Center at the Osher Marin JCC & The Other Cafe Comedy Showcase are thrilled to present the 10th Annual “Evening with Paula Poundstone” in Marin.

From the #1 rated NPR show “Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!” Paula returns with her hysterical, smart, spontaneous humor.

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, Late Show with David Letterman and HBO specials. 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.

Paula can be heard on the big screen as “Forgetter Paula” in Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out, winner of the 2017 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film. She has also starred in her own series on both HBO and ABC, is included on Comedy Central’s Top 100 Comics of All Time and won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Stand-Up. In February 2019, Paula’s stand-up special, Cats, Cops and Stuff was named by TIME Magazine and Tig Notaro as one of The 5 Funniest Stand-Up Specials Ever.

Paula typically plays much larger venues.  This is an incredible opportunity to experience her brilliance in the intimate yet grand Hoytt Theater at the Osher Marin JCC in San Rafael.
