Some say it's an affliction but we call it comedy...

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, lightening 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 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.

People with alternative modes of personal transportation can and will be accommodated and we encourage a scent free event - please be mindful with your colognes and perfumes.

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.
