LISTEN TO THE EVENT PODCAST

WHAT IS A PUN SLAM?

A pun slam is a comedy competition with three rounds, ten contestants, and dozens of puns. Contestants go up one-by-one to give their best puns on a random topic. Each set can be no longer than two minutes. After scoring the first two rounds, the top two punsters go head-to-head in a final pun-off.


HERE'S HOW IT PLAYS OUT...

ROUND ONE

One by one, 10 contestants have two minutes each to make puns based on prompts they have received ahead of time. Each contestant is judged by five randomly chosen audience members. Judges rank each puntestant on a scale of 1-10.

ROUND TWO

All puntestants compete in Round 2. This time contestants get their prompts at the beginning of our 10 minute intermission and another two minutes to make puns.

ROUND THREE

The top two contestants go head-to-head in a final pun-off on a new prompt. The winner walks away with free beer, and a puntastic prize.
