Quotes

Paula Poundstone: The other day I was in a traffic jam, I was a mile back myself, and some guy pulls up behind me and leans on his horn. Like everyone else just forgot to move. I was expecting to see headlines the next day "AWARE CITIZEN ALERTS MANY."

Paula at her absolute best
11 April 2002 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Paula Poundstone has more or less disappeared in recent years, only appearing in various SquiggleVision shows.

However, this HBO one hour special is masterful - and also serendipitous, because of an unexpected response from the audience.

Just to be brief, just be careful who to hire as your lawyer when your mother's face is ripped open on a lube rack...

Nevertheless, this special won the Ace Award, and deserved it.
