Giveaway: Comedian Paula Poundstone tickets + U.S. Pizza!

WAC_PoundstoneAre you ready to LOL?

Well, Paula Poundstone is sure to deliver some belly laughs at her show on February 5th at Walton Arts Center. We’ve got two tickets to give away to the show PLUS dinner at U.S. Pizza! Date night!!!

ABOUT THE SHOW: 25 years ago, Paula Poundstone climbed on a Greyhound bus and traveled across the country – stopping in at open mic nights at comedy clubs as she went. She has since become one of the greatest humorists of our time, praised as a legend among comics and audiences alike.

Widely known as a regular panelist on NPR’s popular weekly news quiz show, “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me,” her list of awards and accolades prove that she not only shot through the glass ceiling, she never even acknowledged that it was there.

The San Fransisco Chronicle says she’s “at the top of her game…” and the Boston Globe raves she’s “never been funnier…” Here for one night only, the always-hilarious Poundstone visits WAC with her distinctive brand of wry, intelligent and witty comedy to deliver insightful, spontaneous humor as she never has before!

u.s. pizzaABOUT THE FOOD: Well, we absolutely love U.S. Pizza. It’s NWA tradition! The pizza’s great and they also have delicious salads, sandwiches and Sunday brunch!

It’s a fun environment and they have their own parking on Dickson Street!

  1. I laughed when my three year old son walked in my room this morning dressed in shorts, a swim shirt, his big sisters coral shoes, socks & a flower head band & announced he was ready to go!

  2. I always laugh at the silly things my grand daughters do. And my hubby . They all belong in the crazy house. But laughing is so good for you .

  3. I laughed really hard with my friend Ashley when I was teasing her about her booty being a “stumbling block” to others. I guess you had to be there. 😉

  4. My 6 year old son is sick and when he was on the toilet he said his butt was throwing up. My husband and I just laughed.

  5. My dog was able to sneak in a kiss right on our cat’s lips. If you knew how much our cat despised the dog, you’d understand!

  6. My five-year-old said football was just like life, “you just have to keep figuring out how to move forward!”

  7. My short brother used a microphone to scare my grandmother from another room talking to her like he was sitting in the same room. He sure keeps us laughing!

  8. Northwest Health Systems has a sign that has a running total of babies delivered in their hospital. My four-year-old has realized that the number increases every time we see the sign. When we last drove by, she yelled, “Mommy, Northwest Health Systems is collecting babies!” I laughed so hard I cried!

  9. My daughter was trying tell me that she can spell. She said, “I can spell I love my mom”! “I is just I. Love is a heart.” LOL!!!!

    She is so stinkin cute!

  10. The last thing that made me laugh was one of my 7th grade students. There is rarely a dull moment teaching middle school… they’re silly!

  11. I have a 3 year old daughter who acts like she’s 25. Basically anything she says or does cracks me up. She’s a riot!

  12. My husband and I were watching “Lady Killer” on Netflix last night with Tom Hanks. We were both laughing out loud multiple times!! It is so funny in a dark kind of way. Tom Hanks is awesome in this movie. Watch it sometime!

  13. Playing card game Phase 10 with family. Everyone being competitive. Started calling me BM, my initials (do not like them!) Then in this game you’re trying to get runs….you had to be there but BM with the runs just cracked us up!!!! Innocent fun!

  14. One of the four year olds at our school went to the bathroom several times to try to “pee” but said he couldn’t because it was stuck in his throat.

  15. The last thing that made me laugh was getting a Facebook message from my best friends ex husband asking me to forgive him for being a “sad” person. Completely came out of the blue and I’m not even friends with him. Lol.

  16. My 3 year old daughter repeating the names of the planets back to me. We got to Uranus, and she said “my anus”!

  17. When my 11 year-old son watched me boil an egg and then crack it, a couple of months ago & said “they don’t come like that?” Totally innocent but super funny.

  18. I am laughing out loud as I type this! My husband & I always watch a few episodes of “Everyone Loves Raymond” on our Roku box and we laugh and laugh and laugh! Sure would like to treat him to a date nite full of comedy! Pick me please! Bahahahaha

  19. This past weekend I took a trip to see my daughter play basketball and her only 2 grandfathers rode with me. Both just got a newer cell phone and could not understand anything. Any time my phone beeped or went off they were both like what’s that? who is that? One of them takes 10 minutes to find his phone when it rings…….the other one left his on his dresser drawer. He figured he didn’t need it since he knew I would have my IPHONE 6. We had an awesome 6hr road trip needless to say!! There gonna love Siri!!

  20. MLK I was babysitting my office workers kids and offered them ice cream. And one of the bigger ten year olds Was very concerned when he opened up the box of the ice cream cones. ( I had made a mistake and bought the mini size which is about the size of your thumb ) He said. “Laurie somethings not right with these cones ! Who would ever think of making an ice cream cone as small as this ? ” Ha ha!

    • I started following on Twitter and Pinterest. I already follow y’all on fb, but I did share the page 🙂

  21. Mine was my 13 year old daughter practicing using “big” words.. Like scrupulously and exuberant:)
