Paula Poundstone Headlines the Majestic Theatre

Paula Poundstone Headlines the Majestic Theatre

Phil Konstantin

Most stand-up comedians hone their craft so they can get themselves a network TV show or possibly a movie that will lead to other movie deals. Paula Poundstone has always done comedy because she wanted to be a comedian. She’s spent so many years on stage telling jokes and testing material that she’s become one of American comedy’s most foremost humorists, one who still attracts massive crowds to her shows like the one she’s doing Friday, May 19, at the Majestic Theatre, 1925 Elm St. The comedian, author, mother of three and frequent panelist on the NPR comedy news quiz show Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me! will perform live on stage starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are between $30-$45 and can be purchased online at tickets.attpac.org.
