WHAT IS THE
IDAHO PUN SLAM?
The Idaho Pun Slam is an 18+ comedy competition held monthly at the Lounge at the End of the Universe.
10 PUNtestants. 3 Rounds. 1 Champion.
MEET THE TEAM
Tiffany Eller is an artist and event emcee. Although her background is not in comedy, she knows what it takes to keep the energy high and help everyone feel welcome, no matter the environment. She and her husband, Daniel, brought the Idaho Pun Slam to life after attending three pun slams in Seattle before moving back home to Boise. Tiffany even WON a pun slam in her day!
Jen Adams is a multi-talented entertainer, specializing in comedy, magic, and cabaret. She is the owner of The Lounge at the End of the Universe (aka LEU) and has launched several comedy events in Boise, including Boise's Funniest Person and the Idaho Comedy Festival. And those are just a few of the events she's contributed to. We're lucky to have her on the Idaho Pun Slam team!
Daniel Vogt is a longtime theatre kid. He has a background in sound and lighting, as well as project management. You'll typically find Dan at the tech booth, perfectly mixing music and sound effects for the pun slam. He's the one that makes sure the technology is working and that the show goes off without a hitch. And without Dan, we wouldn't have the Idaho Pun Slam Podcast!
MEET OUR PARTNERS
Tiffany Eller and Daniel Vogt are the husband-and-wife team behind the Idaho Pun Slam. They partnered with Jen Adams and the Lounge at the End of the Universe in September 2019 to bring a puntastic comedy event to Boise they had participated in while living in Seattle.
Attendance for this monthly event more than doubled in six months... right before the pandemic hit and we had to temporarily shut down operations.
We picked back up in May 2021 at the Idaho Comedy Fest, featuring local and New York–based comedians. Local favorites, Eric Cole and Beth Norton performed, as well as Freddy G (of TikTok fame), and Matthew Broussard (a Comedy Central comedian).
We've had an Idaho Pun Slam every month since! At the time of writing, we are gearing up to host our inaugural PUNdemonium Championship in December 2021.
We're excited to be back on the stage with more puns, prizes and PEOPLE.
