Paula Poundstone on Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson

Paula Poundstone made her final appearance on Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Friday night, and before she made one last appeal via puppet show to get Ferguson to stay in late-night TV, she had jokes for us about dealing with her 16-year-old son.

Did I mention Poundstone did her puppet show with her feet? That happened during panel, after the stand-up set.

Also watch for the moment during her set in which she engages Ferguson in crowd work. Always have to give bonus points for stand-ups who can improvise during a TV taping.

“It’s not like I’m going to be asked back!”

Roll the clip.

As mentioned in the clip, Poundstone has a newish CD, “I Heart Jokes: Paula Tells Them in Boston.”
