Fresh on the heels of the release of her hilarious new book, THE TOTALLY UNSCIENTIFIC STUDY OF THE SEARCH FOR HUMAN HAPPINESS, comedian Paula Poundstone is entertaining audiences around 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.

Seven years in the writing, Poundstone’s new book climbed to #1 on the Amazon Best Sellers list for Humor CDs and landed in the top-10 on the Best Sellers Humor Hardcover list on its first day of release. She is also included in Comedy Central’s List of the 100 Best Standup Comics of All Time, and is an American Comedy Award-winner for Best Female Standup Comic.

Poundstone can be heard regularly on NPR’s #1 show, the Peabody-award winning weekly comedy news quiz Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me! In addition to her regular appearances on the show, Poundstone is now readying the launch of her own, brand-new weekly podcast – LIVE FROM THE POUNDSTONE INSTITUTE – which is set to premiere on June 20th, 2017. Joined by a live and lively audience, Poundstone takes on the research studies that are so odd they just beg for someone to stand up and say “wait, what?!” The podcast is being produced by NPR and is recorded in Los Angeles.
