Publisher's Summary

Award-winning comedian Paula Poundstone is legendary for her spontaneous wit and razor-sharp humor. She is a popular panelist on NPR's Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me! and tours regularly, keeping audiences laughing in her one-woman shows.

In North by Northwest, Paula is at her best in two memorable performances, one recorded in Bayfield, Wisconsin, at Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua, and the other at the historic Aladdin Theater in Portland, Oregon. Join Paula Poundstone in her element: sharing too much information, telling unpredictable stories, and interacting with her audience with a spontaneity that is considered without peer.

    "One of the most intelligent, observant, open commentators available."

    Wonderful humor, disarming and engaging style - pure Paula! Only wish at points it had been video, but that didn't prevent me from laughing long and hard.

    "Laugh Out Loud"

    I've listened to this several times since purchasing it a few months ago and I still laugh every time. I don't even care if I look like an idiot with my earphones on just smiling and laughing to myself. When I need a pick-me-up during my day, I can count on this album to make me cheerful again.

    Wish there were more performances to listen to. Paula's mind is a unique national treasure.

    I love Audible for their variety and number of options of books available. I can enjoy books, take care of my grandchildren and drive too.

    I really enjoy Paula Poundstone and her sense of humor. Her take on life and her slog through it is so hilarious. Listen to this one, you will laugh out loud.

    "So good! I wish it was longer!"

    It is so clear that Paula Poundstone loves people and people love her. Her interactions with the audience is unique and makes me want to see her on stage even more.

    "It's ok"
    What disappointed you about North by Northwest: Paula Poundstone Live!?

    Since it's her stand up live, there's a lot of audience interaction. This is fun when you're there, but when you're listening to it at home, it gets annoying. I want to hear Paula's routine, not how she interacts with random strangers, though she does it very well.


    What was most disappointing about Paula Poundstone’s story?

    It was interrupted so much by the audience
