Paula Poundstone

She’s currently known for her witty comebacks on the popular radio news-quiz show Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me! but in the early ’90s, Paula Poundstone was one of the hottest female standups. Winning several national comedy awards for her live and cable-TV work, Poundstone was riding high—until the big fall. Still murky are the details from her decade-old trouble with the law and child endangerment, but the public seems to have forgiven her. (If people can champion Roman Polanski and Woody Allen, after all . . .) One thing is certain: This incredibly odd woman who calls herself “virginish” because she hates sex is still a riot. Catch her this week, and enjoy the brain warp.
