Paula Poundstone
July 16, 8pm
Cape Cod Melody Tent

Paula is one of the great humorists of our time. You can hear her through your laughter as a regular panelist on NPR's popular rascal of a weekly news quiz show, Wait, Wait. . .Don't Tell Me. Paula'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. Her latest comedy CD, I HEART JOKES: Paula Tells Them in Boston was recorded during a performance at the Wilbur Theatre in the heart of the city and was released on April Fool's Day 2013.
