The Modern at Art Place
Come out and wordplay! You’re invited to watch or compete in Pun DMV, our pun contest. The night is hosted by Chris White, and it has two events. The winners of either contest get prizes from the Improv (and eternal glory)!
Want to compete?
If you’re interested in competing in the February 8 Freestyle event, please let us know by completing the Google form at this link.
The Freestyle Event
Each competitor chooses a punning theme, then prepares in advance a two-minute speech packed with puns inspired by that theme. On the night of the show, the competitors deliver their speeches on stage. We’ll pick a few finalists, based on quality of puns and overall delivery. Then the audience will decide the winner by cheering. If you’d like info on the Freestyle (or Pun DMV Remix) please e-mail [email protected].
The Tournament Event
The Tournament is an on-the-spot punning tournament featuring up to 20 people. At the start of each match, contestants are given a theme. They then take turns making up puns on the spot. People are eliminated when they’re stumped. The last person standing moves on to the next round (or victory)! Anyone in attendance can compete, and you can sign up on site when you arrive.
