About The Show

Don’t miss this special evening of comedy with Paula Poundstone! Her last performance at the SCA sold out and had fans buzzing for weeks (remember all those great Saugatuck jokes?!).

With smart, observational humor and a legendary spontaneous interaction with the crowd, Paula Poundstone is one of our country’s pre-eminent comedians. She improvises with a crowd like a Jazz musician, swinging in unexpected directions without a plan, without a net. There’s a disarming ease in her craft, an immediate sense that she’s so quick on her feet you need never worry about the possibility of something going wrong. 

Paula is regularly featured on NPR’s #1 show, the weekly comedy news quiz, Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me! and in her current book, “The Totally Unscientific Study Of The Search For Human Happiness,” Paula takes on that most inalienable of rights—the pursuit of happiness.

She is recognized on Comedy Central’s list of ‘The 100 Best Standup Comics of All Time,’ she won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Standup Comic, and she is included in innumerable lists, documentaries and literary compendiums noting influential standup comedians of our time.
