Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2
Rated 5 out of 5 by LWARREN Paula Poundstone put on an outstanding show!
Paula Poundstone gave a 2-hour performance that involved the audience on multiple occasions. Her material was fresh. Her interaction with the audience was top notch. She can definitely think fast on her feet regardless of the topic. I especially enjoyed the autograph signing of her electronic CD books, as she was very personable with everyone, taking photos and personally autographing each book that was purchased. It was late but she hung around until everyone left. Definitely a must see performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PahrumpGuy Paula's Performance seemed distracted
While I generally enjoyed Paula Poundstone's show I felt she seemed distracted and not really with the audience. Paula was out of sorts, grasping for jokes and didn't seem to know where she wanted to take the show. At one point about 45-minutes into the show, Paula was interrupted by a woman who I hope was a heckler that was very rude & crude. Paula tried to make it part of the act, it didn't work and the woman continued to interrupt and she was finally removed from the audience. Normally, that should have helped Paula concentrate but it actually made her even more distracted. All in all, I went away from the performance saying I'm glad I didn't pay more than $35 for it. Sorry Paula, I will continue to listen to PBS!
