Paula Poundstone is known for her smart, observational humor and a spontaneous wit that has become the stuff of legend. Time magazine, in the March 2020 “Best of” issue, listed Paula’s HBO special, Cats, Cops and Stuff as one of The 5 Funniest Stand-Up Specials Ever. Paula can be heard weekly as the host of the comedy podcast, Nobody Listens to Paula Poundstone and as a regular panelist on NPR’s comedy news quiz, Wait
Wait…Don’t Tell Me!

The Cultural Arts Series

The Cultural Arts Series began in 2006 with the mission of bringing performing artists of regional, national and international reputation to local stages. The Series presents a wide variety of quality artists from the worlds of theatre, music, dance, and literature. “By bringing artists of this caliber to Brainerd audiences, people don’t have to travel great distances to see their work,” producer Patrick Spradlin says. “For a city the size of Brainerd, we deserve to have these kinds of events here in our area.”

This activity is made possible, in part, by the voters of Minnesota, through a grant from the Five Wings Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
