Laugh Out Loud

I've listened to this several times since purchasing it a few months ago and I still laugh every time. I don't even care if I look like an idiot with my earphones on just smiling and laughing to myself. When I need a pick-me-up during my day, I can count on this album to make me cheerful again.

It's ok

What disappointed you about North by Northwest: Paula Poundstone Live!?

Since it's her stand up live, there's a lot of audience interaction. This is fun when you're there, but when you're listening to it at home, it gets annoying. I want to hear Paula's routine, not how she interacts with random strangers, though she does it very well.

What was most disappointing about Paula Poundstone’s story?

It was interrupted so much by the audience
