Paula Poundstone Brings Her Unique Standup Comedy to Rutland
The Paramount Theatre in Rutland welcomes comedian Paula Poundstone on Saturday, February 27. Poundstone tours regularly, performing standup comedy across the country. Known for her ability to be spontaneous with a crowd, Poundstone’s interchanges with the audience are never mean or done at a person’s expense. She even manages to handle politics without provoking the pall of disapproval less artful comics have received. She was the first woman to perform standup at the prestigious White House Correspondents’ dinner where she joined the current President as part of the evening’s entertainment. She has starred in comedy specials on HBO and BRAVO, won an Emmy Award and does occasional editorials for NPR’s ‘All Things Considered.’ She is recognized as one of Comedy Central’s 100 greatest stand-ups of all time. She also matches wits with some of the country’s leading pundits on NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me, heard in 5 million homes across the country. Paula is also a published author and lecturer. Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets are $39.75. Call 802-775-0903 or visit paramountvt.org. The Paramount Theatre is located at 30 Center Street, Rutland.
