NPR Comedian Paula Poundstone Friday, Mar 26 7:30p at California State University - Chico: Laxson Auditorium, Chico, CA It’s impossible to attend a Paula Poundstone performance without marveling at her ability to interact spontaneously with audience members.Armed with nothing but a stool, a microphone and a can of Diet Pepsi, Paula’s ability to create humor on the spot has become the stuff of legend. Little wonder people leave Paula’s shows debating whether the random people she talked to were “plants” – which, of course they never are, and complaining that their cheeks hurt from laughter.

(Staging Chico)
Hi, I'm Julie McLaughlin, owner of Staging Chico and Chico Feng Shui. I'm the mother of two wonderful children and we've lived in, and been an active part of the Chico community for over 7 years. My passion and talent has always been using my creative eye, whether it be for interior design, painting, sketching, photography or color schemes and fabric combinations. I'm an outside of the box kind of thinker and can visualize the art and beauty in almost anything and transform it into something others can see the beauty in. I started this staging business to help others sell their homes more quickly and for more profit by beautifying and depersonalizing their house. By depersonalizing I mean, making the house into something marketable by taking out the personal items that would otherwise d...
