The Pun-Off brings together a diverse community of wordplayers and countless unfortunate bystanders (and sitters). We are proud to invite you to celebrate the contagious power of the pun, the lowest form of comedy and the highest form of intellect; a prized tool of parents, kindergarten teachers, Facebook trolls, and Witzelsucht patients everywhere!
Doors open at 6:30 pm // Main events start promptly at 7:00pm
Prepared Puntificators will open the evening with a non-competitive showcase of original punning on a topic of their choosing – Please keep it under 2 minutes.
Punslingers will battle fellow punsters in lightning rounds of freestyle punning on a given category*, following a full audience warm-up. Last punster standing gets an official hand-mei-made trophy, in addition to bragging rights (if you really want to call ’em that…)
AUDIENCE: please get a General Admission ticket.
First-timers very welcome – all rules will be explained and you will be well-prepped at the event. Finally, remember: At the Pun-Off, jokes don’t have to be funny, they just have to be puns.
