Catty lady

If you can’t quite place Paula Poundstone, try imagining her with a red brick wall behind her while she dishes out a brilliantly composed cat joke. There’s also a pretty good chance you’ve heard her yucking it up as a regular panelist on NPR’s “Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me.” Poundstone holds the honor of first female comedian to win the CableACE Award for best stand-up comedy special, has hosted numerous HBO comedy features, and is currently looking forward to her second book release in which we can expect more intelligent wit about politics and pop culture.

Saturday 2/23 $29.50, 8pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
