Comedy specials: Cats, Cops, and Stuff; Paula Poundstone Goes to Harvard

As a stand-up comedian, Paula Poundstone is known for her observational comedy and spontaneous interactions with her audience. Her comedy career took off with a series of one-hour specials on HBO and backstage commentary during the 1992 presidential election on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She's now on NPR's weekly news quiz show Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me. 

Poundstone is revered in the stand-up comedy world: she was ranked #88 in Comedy Central's list of the 100 greatest stand-ups of all-time. She was inducted into the Comedy Hall of Fame in 2010 and won the 2012 Moment Magazine Creativity Award. And in 1992, she was the first woman to be invited to perform stand-up comedy at the White House correspondents dinner.
