Paula Poundstone is perhaps best known among NPR listeners as a panelist on the comedy news quiz show “Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me.” She’s also a stand-up comedian with film and TV credits, as well as an author.

She’ll bring her stand-up to The Plaza Live in Orlando, Sunday November 24th.

Paula is known for speaking her mind, although she does her best to be inclusive of all audience members.

She tells 90.7’s Nicole Darden Creston that she even tried going completely apolitical for a while, but one passionate belief about the government having a role in our lives gave her away. The issue?
