The Idaho Pun Slam's PUNdemonium Championship is Saturday, December 18, at the Lounge at the End of the Universe. Featuring 16 finalists from previous slams, the night will be filled with dad jokes on topics ranging from "Vegetables" to "The Alphabet," to everything in between.

Grab a bite from The Void food truck and a drink from the bar, and sit back for a night that will leave you in stitches.

Audience members will receive a FREE Idaho Pun Slam schedule magnet, and have a chance to enter their best pun in a raffle for a pack of TEN Idaho Pun Slam tickets for the 2022 season.

The night will be similar in structure to our previous slams, only this time we have the best of the best competing for a $1,000 GRAND (get it?) prize and $500 second place prize.

All 16 contestants will have individual time on stage for the first round, receiving scores (1-10) from audience judges. Once we have eliminated half of the contestants in individual rounds (number of rounds TBD), there will be four head-to-head battles between the top eight, and bracket down until there is one SLAMpion and one runner-up.

From creator and host Tiffany Eller:

"This will be our first championship tournament after two years of pandemic interference. The first Idaho Pun Slam was in September 2019, and we've had one monthly for as many months as we were able. The original plan was to have a tournament in September 2020 on the one-year anniversary of our debut, but we all know how that panned out. We tacked on seven more slams since May 2021, and have a roster of puntastic individuals that have shown us they've got what it takes to become the ultimate PUNdemonium Champion. Now it's time to see who will take it all."

With a total of 13 slams to date, the Idaho Pun Slam crew is ready to tackle their biggest event yet. Come out to the LEU on Saturday, December 18 at 7 pm, located at 2417 Bank Drive (off Vista Avenue behind the washer woman).

This event is ages 18 and up. Tickets are $10 online and can be purchased at the door as available. Seating is limited to 250.

Tickets are going fast.

Get yours before they're gone.

The Idaho Pun Slam PUNdemonium Championship is sponsored by the Lounge at the End of the Universe, KSWAG Promotions, Idaho Legal Solutions and Adam & Eve.

Last weekend's Idaho Pun Slam drew in a large crowd for a night of laughs at the Lounge at the End of the Universe.

There was a lot to celebrate over the weekend, from Juneteenth to Father's Day, to the reopening of the indoor Idaho Pun Slam.

Contestants gave us their best puns on topics ranging from gardening to grocery shopping. Two contestants even rapped their jokes! Everyone who competed did a phenomenal job in the first two rounds.

In a historic first, the third round featured the SAME FINALISTS as our last fully-produced pun slam in January 2020. Bree Jones and Eric Cole went head-to-head on the topic of "Christmas Songs." Eric again repeated history by taking the grand prize of a free drink, tickets to any Idaho Pun Slam, and a punny gift bag from the dollar store.

Idaho Pun Slam founders, Tiffany Eller and Daniel Vogt, had their five-year-old daughter, Henley, with them for her first pun slam. Henley had been so excited to come see what the hubbub was all about, but throughout the show she grew disenchanted by the lack of singing and dancing.

Her night was made when Mom let her tell her best joke on stage:

What did the chicken say when he went to the library? Booook, book-book-book, booook!

And of course, there's always time for a dance break.

Our monthly event takes place this Saturday, June 19, at the Lounge at the End of the Universe. And we would LOVE to see you there. Doors open at 6 pm, puns start at 7 pm.

If you haven’t heard of it, the Idaho Pun Slam is a three-round competition between ten PUNtestants.

For the first two rounds, all ten people draw a random topic out of a hat and give us two minutes of their best puns. Five audience judges give them a score from 1-5.

By the third round, we will calculate the total scores from the first two rounds. The top two puntestants go head-to-head in a final pun-off on a shared topic.

Anyone can compete; first come, first served. Notepads and pens will be available to write your puns, and you may read your notes on stage. (Seriously, anyone can do this!)

The prize is a free drink, a puntastically awful gift, and a place in our winner’s tournament in December (TBD).

This event is age 18+, and alcohol will be available to attendees age 21+ with a valid ID.

Again, we want to have an engaged audience for our first indoor show since the Before Times. The energy is so much fun when the audience and performers play with each other.

AND we are recording the newest episode of the Idaho Pun Slam podcast! We already have one episode up on Spotify and Apple Podcasts. It’s hilarious.

Come have a laugh, a drink, and a celebratory night out to welcome back a beloved comedic institution.

See you soon!
