Paula Poundstone's Ha Ha Ho Ho Holiday Comedy Show!
Though this year marks the release of her second comedy album, Paula Poundstone is hardly a newcomer to the comedy scene. Frequent auto commuters, for instance, will recognize her distinctive voice from her regular appearances on NPR's Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!, while longtime television viewers will recognize her distinctive presence from her first HBO special, Cats, Cops, and Stuff or her frequent sets on late-night talk shows. Whether delivering an amusing monologue or having an improvisational conversation with an audience member, Poundstone demonstrates the quick wit and confidence that caused Comedy Central to list her as one of the 100 Greatest Standups of All Time. The comedian has marked numerous firsts for the industry, including being the first woman to host the White House Correspondents Dinner, and the first person to make Carl Kasell stutter.
In early 1915, movie house owner John Weatherford was in an unexpectedly cold pickle. Not long after relevers rang in the new year at his Majestic Opera House, the building buckled under the weight of 61 inches of snow. After shoveling his way in to save the projector, Weatherford set about building an even grander home for his silver-screen spectacles. Now called the Orpheum, the new theater opened in 1917, and spent the next several decades hosting Hollywood's biggest blockbusters. Now a live performance space, the Orpheum Theater welcomes living, breathing stars for everything from rock shows and theatrical performances to poetry readings and comedy extravaganzas. The current owners even sneak in a nod to Weatherford every now and again, hosting screenings of obscure and independent films.
