Paula Poundstone brings her stand-up comedy to Dearborn
Paula Poundstone is one of the funniest people in Public Radio. You can hear her test her knowledge of the news, and throw in a few quips on Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me. This Friday, she’ll be performing at the Ford Community Performing Arts Center.
About thirteen years ago, when Poundstone started with Wait Wait, the show was produced mostly in-studio.
“The show was still really, really fun to do. But it definitely and obviously took on a stronger energy by virtue of having a responsive crowd in from of us, which is really, really fun,” she said.
Poundstone draws comical inspiration from the crowd during her stand-up as well.
“My favorite part of the night is, I do a time honored, ‘where are you from, what do you do for a living?’ And little biographies emerge, and I kind of use that to set my sails for what to talk about,” she said.
