One World Theatre says
Over the span of her remarkable career, Paula Poundstone has amassed a list of awards and accolades that stretch the length of a great big tall guy’s arm. She not only shot through the glass ceiling, she never even acknowledged that it was there.

Poundstone was the first woman to win the cable ACE for Best Standup Comedy Special and 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 starred in comedy specials on HBO and Brave, won an Emmy Award and served as ‘official correspondent’ for The Tonight Show during the 1992 Presidential race.

Poundstone is recognized as one of Comedy Central's 100 Greatest Stand-ups of All Time and has won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Standup Comic. In 2010, Poundstone was one of a select group voted into the Comedy Hall of Fame. As a member of NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me, she is now heard in 5 million homes across the country as she matches wits with some of the country’s leading pundits.

Performances at 7 & 9:30 pm. For ticketing & dinner information, please call 888.616.0522.
