Road warrior Paula Poundstone is returning to our region, a familiar stomping ground for the comedian who has been a standup stalwart for almost four decades. A regular voice on these airwaves on NPR’s Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me, Poundstone is performing at the Bardavon in Poughkeepsie on June 24. Poundstone also has a new double album coming out this month: North by Northwest: Paula Poundstone Live!.

Usually when we hear from Paula Poundstone on WAMC, she’s making us laugh on a Saturday morning on Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me, where she is a regular panelist, or stopping by Lake Wobegon on A Prairie Home Companion. But she also spends plenty of time on the road performing her unique brand of stand-up. Poundstone has been honing her live act for more than three decades, between writing essays and books, and occasional acting.
