An Evening with Paula Poundstone

One of our country’s foremost comics & star of NPR’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me” returns to the Osher Marin JCC, for one night only, of smart, hysterical, spontaneous comedy.

Kanbar Center for the Performing Arts

Fresh on the heels of the release of her hilarious new book, THE TOTALLY UNSCIENTIFIC STUDY OF THE SEARCH FOR HUMAN HAPPINESS (Algonquin Books), comedian Paula Poundstone is entertaining audiences across the country and leaving them complaining that their cheeks hurt from laughter and wondering if the random people she talks to are plants. Of course, they never are.

“Paula Poundstone is the funniest human being I have ever known. Air becomes funny having been breathed by her.” – Wait, Wait host Peter Sagal
