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.
