Product Description

Award-winning comedian Paula Poundstone is legendary for her spontaneous wit and razor-sharp humor. She is a popular panelist on NPR's Wait Wait . . . Don't Tell Me! and tours regularly, keeping audiences laughing in her one-woman shows. In North by Northwest, Paula is at her best in two memorable performances, one recorded in Bayfield, Wisconsin, at Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua and the other at the historic Aladdin Theater in Portland, Oregon.
