Please join us at the 1932 Criterion Theatre in Bar Harbor to see Paula Poundstone live on Saturday, September 7th at 8PM. Paula Poundstoneis a humorist, author and comedian known for her clever, observational humor and spontaneous wit. When she isn’t collecting hotel soaps while on tour or paneling on NPR’s #1 show, Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!, Paula hosts the popular Maximum Fun podcast, Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone. Nobody is a comedy field guide to life complete with taste tests, cats of the weeks and leading experts in everything from beekeeping to ping pong to prosopagnosia (say that 3 times fast). Paula can be heard on the big screen as “Forgetter Paula” in Disney/Pixar's Inside Out, winner of the 2017 Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film. Shehas also starred in her own series on both HBO and ABC, is included on Comedy Central’s Top 100 Comics of All Time and won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Stand-Up. In February 2019, Paula’s stand-up special, "Cats, Cops and Stuff" was named by TIME Magazine and Tig Notaro as one of The 5 Funniest Stand-Up Specials Ever. She is also the author of "The Totally Unscientific Study of the Search for Human Happiness" and "There's Nothing in This Book That I Meant to Say," and they will be on sale before and after the show!
