The Paula Poundstone Show

Show Summary

The Paula Poundstone Show is best remembered for its very short run, having been cancelled after just two airings. Although this laid-back hybrid of stand-up comedy, audience participation, and politics opened to positive reviews, it was scheduled in a no-win time slot and was perhaps "too smart" for the ABC Saturday line-up.
On a mostly bare stage that looked like a warehouse, Paula would sit on her stool and carry on witty conversations with audience members, something she'd perfected in her years of club performances. Comedy was also found via remote broadcasts; in search of a Nielsen family, she had to settle for a camera at Leslie Nielsen's house.
Her short, eclectic guest list included newscaster Sam Donaldson, Senator Paul Simon and Lily Tomlin.
