You’re Invited to a slam-style, pun-making competition and comedy show!

What is a Pun-Slam? Allow us to walk you through this event…

Step 1: Arrive - A fantastic decision; you’re already winning!

Step 2: Decide if you intend to compete, would like to judge, or just sit back and enjoy the show.

Step 3: If you decide to compete, you are now an Intender, intending to win, and will choose or be given a prompt with up to an hour (depending on your arrival time – Doors open an hour before the show begins) to come up with your two-minute schtick for round two.

For example, if your prompt is “cheese” your schtick could go something along the lines of, “Wow, everyone here is really lookin’ Sharp; I hope ya’ll don’t get too Shredded! You little Muensters spending lots of Cheddar tonight? Tipping your bar staff, I hope!”

You will also receive free entry, a drink ticket, and the chance to win a gift card to the venue or a T-shirt!

If you decide to be a judge, you will be handed a dry-erase board and marker (for the evening).

3 rounds (up to) 6 Intenders 5 judges 1 ChampiPun!

In between rounds, local comedians will perform punny sets!

How The Competition Works:

Round 1 - In pairs of two, Intenders (volunteers from the audience) approach the stage and are given a prompt to collaborative pun with (no one goes on stage alone for the first round and we are making friends here)!

Round 2 - The Intenders come up one by one to share their puns with the prompt provided before the show began.

Round 3 - The top 4 punners pun-off head to head until we have a ChampiPun who wins a prize, bragging rights, and big cheers!
