Great stand-up come­di­enne

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Stanstead, Qc Derby Line, VT

Emmy-win­ning come­di­enne PAULA POUND­STONE is fa­mous for her ra­zor-sharp wit and spon­tane­ity, draw­ing from her own com­plex life: three kids, 13 cats, moth­er­hood, de­mand­ing job, crazy travel sched­ule, her frus­tra­tion at get­ting older, and a bag of neu­roses, in­clud­ing her fa­mous in­abil­ity to ever shut up. In other words: she’s just like many of us.

King­dom County Pro­duc­tions will present Paula Pound­stone at 7:30pm, Fri­day, Novem­ber 2nd, at the Haskell Opera House in Derby Line. Re­served seat Tick­ets are now on sale at the Cata­mount Arts Re­gional Box Of­fice or by call­ing 802-748-2600. On­line sales are avail­able at www. Cata­moun­tArts.org.

One of Com­edy Cen­tral’s “Great­est Stand-Ups of All Time,” Paula Pound­stone is a fre­quent guest on Leno, Let­ter­man, A Prairie Home Com­pan­ion, and the NPR show Wait Wait! Don’t Tell Me! Pound­stone is so quick that au­di­ence mem­bers of­ten leave com­plain­ing that their cheeks hurt from laugh­ter.

The Bos­ton Globe writes that “Pound­stone im­pro­vises with a crowd like a jazz mu­si­cian, swing­ing in un­ex­pected direc­tions with­out a net.”

Paula Pound­stone’s Novem­ber 2nd show is be­ing pro­duced by King­dom County Pro­duc­tions with spon­sor­ship sup­port from The New­port Daily Ex­press, The Stanstead Jour­nal, Community Na­tional Bank, North Point Dodge, Cabot Cream­ery, and Ver­mont Pub­lic Ra­dio.
