The Grand 1894 Opera House Presents Paula Poundstone, October 30th

The Grand 1894 Opera House is proud to announce PAULA POUNDSTONE in her premiere performance at The Grand as she takes center stage on Saturday, October 30, at 8pm.

With nothing but a microphone, a can of Diet Pepsi, and especially… her witty imagination, stand-up comedian, Paula Poundstone is certain to have you laughing hysterically as she improvises “like a jazz musician…swinging in unexpected directions, without a plan, and without a net.” Indeed, “her talent for creating humor on the spot has become the stuff of legend”, noted Nick Zaino, who reviewed a recent show for The Boston Globe. Now world-renowned, Poundstone has performed with such legends as Johnny Carson and David Letterman, was a big hit on numerous television shows beginning in the 80s -including popular specials on HBO, taking center stage at performing arts centers and theatres in the 90s, doing live, behind-the-scenes coverage at the 45th EMMY Awards, and doing live spots at both the Democratic and Republic National Conventions in 1992.

Also named one of Comedy Central’s “Top 100 Comics of All Time”, and a regular panelist on NPR’s “Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me,” Paula Poundstone’s performance at The Grand is sure to be a night of entertainment you don’t want to miss!
