The Punderground

When: Thu., Dec. 8, 7 p.m. 2016

We have plenty of open mic, karaoke, trivia and slam poetry nights, but what about the folks out there who can spit a mean pun on the spot? Enter The Punderground, a new local punning competition hosted occasionally at downtown cafe/bar Boots. Here’s the gist: 12 funny punners compete, paired against each other randomly for three head-to-head elimination rounds. Each pair gets a topic; going back and forth, they each have to pun the topic without re-puns or cliches. The audience can vote for their favorite punner, and prizes are handed out to the top three. If you’re pathetically bad at puns, kick back in the audience. All you whip-smart punners, start practicing.
