(MAHWAH, NJ) – Comedienne Paula Poundstone returns to Ramapo College this month.

Armed with nothing but a stool, a microphone and a can of Diet Pepsi, Paula’s ability to create humor on the spot has become the stuff of legend. Little wonder people leave Paula’s shows debating whether the random people she talked to were “plants” – which, of course they never are, and complaining that their cheeks hurt from laughter.                                 .

Paula’s spontaneity and razor-sharp wit have made her one of the most popular panelists on NPR’s hilarious weekly news quiz show, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me. (2008 winner of the prestigious Peabody Award for Broadcasting excellence).  Her commentaries are heard on NPR’s Morning Edition and read on the Huffington Post and comedy site: 23/6.  Her first book, There’s Nothing In This Book That I Meant To Say, (with a foreword by Mary Tyler Moore) was published by Random House and she is hard at work on her second for the same imprint.   She also just released her first comedy CD: I HEART JOKES: Paula Tells Them In Maine, 60 minutes of hilarious comedy recorded live at the Stone Mountain Arts Center.

Showtime is at 8 p.m. at the Russ and Angelica Berrie Center for the Performing and Visual Arts on the Ramapo campus. Tickets are $22, $25 and $28. For more information call 201-684-7844 or visit www.ramapo.edu
