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?!).

Paula is also an Author, Lecturer, Host, and Actress. In her second
book, The Totally Unscientific Study Of The Search For Human
Happiness(Algonquin Books) she asks the question, “Is there a secret
to human happiness?” She offers herself up as a guinea pig in a series
of “totally scientific” experiments, recording her data for all mankind.
Kirkus Reviews calls it, “A deeply revealing memoir in which the
pathos doesn’t kill the humor—delivers more than it promises.” The
book debuted at #1 on Amazon best sellers lists in Humor in
Hardcover, Audible, Kindle and CD within its first ten days of release
and is now out in paperback. The audiobook, read by Paula, was one
of five finalists for the 2018 Audio Book of the Year.

Paula is a popular panelist on NPR’s # 1 show, the weekly comedy
news quiz, Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me! Her new weekly podcast for
Maximum Fun, Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone, is
a comedy field guide to life. Each week Paula and her co-host, Adam
Felber, a friend and fellow panelist onWait Wait…Don’t Tell
Me! bring on leading expert guests and use their unique comedic
sensibility to help us navigate life in the 21st century. Along the way,
Paula attempts to explain existence through her kaleidoscopic
perspective, and Adam tries to interject some rationality.

Paula’s guest appearances include The Late Show with Stephen
Colbert, Star Talk with Neil deGrasse Tyson, Late Night with Carson
Daly, Nerdist with Chris Hardwick, and she was a clue in a New York
Times crossword puzzle. She’s filed commentaries for CBS
Sunday Morning, and Morning Edition and All Things Considered for
NPR. She voices the character “Paulette” in Cartoon Network’s new
animated series Summer Camp Island. An avid Disney movie fan,
Paula had a dream come true when she was cast to voice the character
“Forgetter Paula” in Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out, winner of the
2017 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film.
