From "HBO" and "The Tonight Show" and NPR:
Appearing on stage with a stool, a microphone, and a can of Diet Pepsi, Paula Poundstone is famous for her razor-sharp wit and spontaneity. By 1990, she had starred in several comedy specials for HBO and appeared on Saturday Night Live. Paula's first one-hour HBO special, "Cats, Cops, and Stuff," made her the first woman to ever receive the Cable ACE for best standup comedy special. She also starred in a self-titled talk show series for HBO for which she won her second Cable ACE Award.

Paula's first book, There's Nothing In This Book That I Meant To Say, is part memoir, part monologue, and features biographies of legendary historical figures including Abraham Lincoln, Joan of Arc and Sitting Bull, among others. Last November BRAVO premiered Paula's newest standup comedy special: "Paula Poundstone: Look What the Cat Dragged In." She has also appeared on Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion," "Late Night with David Letterman," "Sesame Street," "To Tell The Truth" and "Comic Relief." Paula was recently named the national spokesperson for Friends of Libraries U.S.A - a citizens support group with chapters all over the country that help raise money for their local libraries children's summer reading programs, author events, special book collections, equipment, and whatever else they might need.
