On Friday, June 16th the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, MN welcomes comedian Paula Poundstone. “I’ll be in St. Paul just in time for the Puddle Festival that happens just after the melting of the ice sculptures,” says the Emmy Award-winning Poundstone about her upcoming performance.

Paula Poundstone is one of our country’s foremost comedians, prized for her razor-sharp wit and an incomparable spontaneous interaction with a crowd. Writes Nick Zaino with the Boston Globe: “…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.” A star of several HBO specials and her own series on ABC and HBO, Poundstone can be heard regularly on NPR’s #1 show, the weekly comedy news quiz Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!, where she holds court with our Country’s top Pundits. Says Peter Sagal, host of the show, Paula Poundstone is the funniest human being I have ever known….If you chopped her into bits, each piece would be hilarious. (But don’t.)”

Also an author, Paula’s second book, The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happiness (Algonquin Books) debuts on May 9, 2017. Is there a secret to happiness? Meditation? Volunteering? Getting in shape? Swing dancing? Driving a Lamborghini? You may be laughing too hard to care. Poundstone was the first woman to perform at the prestigious White House Correspondents Dinner, the first woman to win the Cable television ACE for Best Standup Comedy Special, and is an American Comedy Award-winner for Best Female Standup Comic.
