Fresh on the heels of the release of her hilarious new book, THE TOTALLY UNSCIENTIFIC STUDY OF THE SEARCH FOR HUMAN HAPPINESS (available now wherever books, ebooks and audio books are sold), comedian Paula Poundstone is entertaining audiences around the country and leaving them complaining that their cheeks hurt from laughter and wondering if the random people she talks to are plants. Of course, they never are.

Seven years in the writing, Poundstone’s new book climbed to #1 on the Amazon Best Sellers list for Humor CDs and landed in the top-10 on the Best Sellers Humor Hardcover list on its first day of release, all the while garnering great reviews. Kirkus– one of the most notable pre-review sources in the industry – called the book “A deeply revealing memoir in which the pathos doesn't kill the humor – delivers more than it promises.” Tony and Emmy Award-winner Lily Tomlin described the book as “A remarkable journey. I laughed. I cried. I got another cat.”
