Stand-up

Paula Poundstone

When: Sat., Dec. 17, 8 p.m. 2016

One of the best parts of researching Paula Poundstone in hopes of writing a pithy blurb about her tour stop at Royal Oak Music Theatre is watching the evolution — or lack thereof — of her hair. From a poofy, crimped bob in the ’80s to the more sleek version of the same ’do that she sports these days, Poundstone has been rocking the same coif (and the same signature suit) for most of her career. About the show: Poundstone, who has long integrated herself in politics, will give a performance that’s sure to touch on the 2016 election and other political themes.
