Maine’s own Pooler performed at the Franco Center last year, and she had the audience in stitches from her very first joke. In the tradition of Lucille Ball, Phyllis Diller and Carol Burnett, Pooler possesses a care-free, spontaneous, devil-may-care silliness that knows no bounds and accents the absurdity of everyday life. It was as if destiny had scripted her comic role through years of training: growing up in a Maine trailer park, working at McDonald’s in high school, a stint as a “hairipist,” cosmetologist, wife, mother, and finally as a marketing guru. Any one of those jobs is rife with comedy material – put them all together and you’ve enough material to keep ’em laughing for hours.
