This week Jimmy sat down with his good friend from the Boston comedy days comedian Paula Poundstone to discuss all things Paula. Her hilarious stories of traveling and performing during the pandemic as well as the challenges of getting people to take the vaccine. Jimmy and Paula came up with some really funny and ingenious ways to encourage Americans to get vaccinated including Jello Shots.
Her podcast “Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone” is available on her website paulapoundstone.com. She is a regular guest on the very popular NPR comedy news quiz. Wait, wait, don’t tell me. She’s an award winning author and groundbreaking female comedian. Paula was the first female comic to perform at the White House Correspondents Dinner. She was the first female stand up to win the ACE Award for Best Comedy special on cable television. Time magazine in the March 2020 Best of issue listed Paula’s HBO special “Cats, Cops and Stuff” as one of the five funniest stand up specials ever. It is great to have her on the Jimmy Tingle Show.
