(NEWTON, NJ) -- The Newton Theatre presents Paula Poundstone on Friday, September 15, 2023 at 8:00pm. The iconic comedian is known for her smart, observational humor and legendary spontaneous wit.
Paula is the star of several HBO specials, including Cats, Cops and Stuff, and Paula Poundstone Goes to Harvard. Paula is a regular panelist on NPR’s comedy news quiz, Wait Wait... Don’t Tell Me! She is heard weekly on her successful comedy podcast, Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone.
Paula’s second book, The Totally Unscientific Study Of The Search For Human Happiness (Algonquin), was 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. The audiobook was one of five finalists in all genres for the Audio Book of the Year AUDIE award.
