NPR fans will know her voice from her regular appearances on Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!, and Comedy Central fans may recognize her name from the channel’s 2004 compilation of the greatest standups of all time. She’s Paula Poundstone, and she’s managed to stay relevant after more than 30 years in the public eye. Chalk it up to her versatility—her quick-witted improv has made her a perfect fit for the radio, while her clever monologues, each laced with conversational intimacy, have earned her a series of HBO specials. Poundstone has also marked a number of historic firsts in comedy, including being the first woman to host the White House Correspondents Dinner, and the first person to make Carl Kasell stutter.
Coral Springs Center for the Arts
Who says thespians and jocks can't coexist? Coral Springs Center for the Arts was once an old gym, after all—and following a 1996 renovation that saw the installation of a 1,471-seat theatre and the removal of all the abandoned bodybuilder nests, the venue became the culturally rich institution it is today. Now approximately 200,000 patrons migrate to its riverside confines annually for Broadway shows and performances by comedians, jazz luminaries, and pop stars. However, that theater isn't the only venue on the premises. On the third floor, an 80-seat cabaret-style Black Box Studio draws audiences into a more intimate, personal style of performance—and VIP packages grant access to the closest of the really close seats. Right below that studio is the Center's Coral Springs Museum of Arts, which showcases both a permanent collection of visual arts and traveling exhibits.
