You’ve likely heard her voice on the NPR news quiz “Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!” She’s the contestant with all the clever, off-the-cuff jokes—wait, wait, that’s all of them. Known for her brand of spontaneous observational humor, Poundstone’s stand-up act first stood up in 1979, and she’s been cracking jokes on stage ever since. Her pre-performance ritual: “I like to shower, because I want to give the crowd the deluxe. I slap on some red lipstick and glance at some notes. I like to have one or two things in my head that I am looking forward to telling the crowd.”

Watch her wing it at the Royal Oak Theater on Saturday, December 13, 7:30pm. $29 advance tickets. $35 at the door. 318 W. Fourth Street, Royal Oak, MI 48067, 248-399-298.
