Wait, wait ... yes, comedian Paula Poundstone will bring her sharp wit, droll delivery to Boise. She’s odd, she’s quirky, she’s a cat lady, an author and one of the most successful women to come out of the comedy club scene of the ’80s and ’90s. Poundstone boasts a long list of HBO specials, two CableACE awards and an American Comedy Award. You also hear her unmistakable voice in animated films such as the Oscar winning-“Inside Out,” and on “Wait Wait ... Don’t Tell Me!,” a clever news quiz show on National Public Radio.
8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, The Egyptian Theatre, 700 W. Main St., Boise. $35. TicketWeb, (866) 468-7624.
