Paula Poundstone makes her Newport Comedy Series debut this fall. Poundstone, a regular panelist on NPR Radio’s #1 show, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me, has starred in several HBO Standup Comedy Specials. She is recognized as one of Comedy Central’s 100 greatest stand-ups of all time. She won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Standup Comic, and in 2010 was one of a select group voted into the Comedy Hall of Fame. You can hear her as Forgetter Paula, in the smash hit Pixar movie, Inside Out.
Hosted by Doug Key of the smash hit “The Wasted Talent Show”, the Rogue Island Comedy Festival is going to be insane. At least 7-8 comedians on all 8 shows! We highly recommend checking out more than just one! Comics from Comedy Central’s Half Hour specials, Inside Amy Schumer, Adam Devine’s House Party, Conan, TruTV, MTV, Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, and more!
