Paula engages the audience. She asks the audience questions and then uses those answers at various places during the show. Her material is a mixture of prepared and spontaneous. She covers the past and current events.
One way to compare comedians is on a dollar per laugh cost. You divide the cost of the ticket by the number of times you laughed during the performance. Paula’s is 5 cents per laugh or maybe less. And that was sitting in the expensive seats.
Another way to measure it is to whether you needed to breath at some point. Paula’s presentation at points left me needing to recover from all the laughs.
