Poundstone is a regular panelist on NPR’s hit weekly news quiz show, “Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me” (winner of a Peabody Award for Broadcasting excellence). She was the first woman to win the cable ACE for best standup comedy special, and the first woman to be invited to entertain at the prestigious White House Correspondents dinner. She is the star of several HBO comedy specials, appears frequently on the late night talk shows, and is hard at work on her second book for Random House. She lives in Santa Monica, Ca with her three children, Toshia, Allison and Thomas E. Says Poundstone: “Things couldn’t be better.”
