February 11, 2017 at The Go Game in San Francisco.
Join us and celebrate the contagious power of the PUN, the irresistible wordplay sourced in a seemingly endless supply of multiple meanings for a single word or phrase. Prized tool of parents, kindergarten teachers, obnoxious friends, and Witzelsucht patients everywhere!
Doors open at 6:30pm Pacific
Main events start promptly at 7:00pm Pacific
We’ll have new formats, lightning fast punning, hilarious categories, and heartless, iron-fisted judges.
***Please note new ticket format: AUDIENCE just needs a General Admission ticket. COMPETITORS just need a Competitor ticket for either or both categories.
AUDIENCE, just get yourself a general admission ticket and come to enjoy the pun-off – OR… sign up to COMPETE… pay less and earn a free drink! First timers very welcome – all rules will be explained and you will be well prepped at the event. *Seriously, this is the warmest crowd in town.
Prepared Pun Puntificators will open the evening with Original punning on a topic of their choosing – Please keep it to 2 minutes maximum. This is a non-judged portion of the evening.
Punslingers will battle fellow punsters in rounds of freestyle punning on a given category following a full audience warm-up. Last person standing gets official one-of-a-kind handmade trophy in addition to bragging rights (if you can call ’em that…)
*all categories and rules subject to change.
Finally, remember: At the punoff, puns don’t have to be funny, they just have to be puns.
Please don’t contact the organizer for refunds or exchanges.
The Pun-Off warmly encourages punsters of all backgrounds, identities, persuasions, and inclinations to attend.
If the price is a serious obstacle, contact the organizer to inquire about options. We aim to turn away no puns and can use support especially in areas of advertising and flyering.
