The Lensic Performing Arts Center will host comedian Paula Poundstone Dec. 13. Poundstone’s “Ha Ha Ho Ho Holiday Comedy Show” is at 7:30 p.m.
“No two shows I do are the same. It’s not that I don’t repeat material. I do. My shows, when they’re good, and I like to think they often are, are like a cocktail party. When you first get there, you talk about how badly you got lost and how hard it was to find parking,” Poundstone said. “Then you tell a story about your kids or what you just saw on the news. You meet some new people and ask them about themselves. Then, someone said, ‘Tell that story you used to tell,’ and then someone on the other side of the room spills a drink and you mock them. No one ever applauds me when I leave a party, though. I think they high five.”
Poundstone’s interchanges with the audience are never mean, or done at a person’s expense.
She even manages to handle politics without provoking the pall of disapproval less artful comics have received.
Her newest comedy CD, “I Heart Jokes: Paula Tells Them in Boston,” was recorded during a performance at the Wilbur Theatre in the heart of the city and was released on April Fool’s Day 2013.
