Pun Intended is a slam-style, pun making, community-focused clever comedy competition
Your hostess's back!
Pun Intended with Mistress of Pheremonies, Master of Ceremonies, Forest E.I. Ember
What is a Pun-Slam? Allow us to walk you through this event…
Step 1: Arrive - A fantastic decision; you’re already winning!
Step 2: Decide if you intend to compete, would like to judge, or just sit back and enjoy the show.
Step 3: If you decide to compete, you are now an Intender, intending to win, come up with up to 2 mins of punny material related to the topic of your choice!
For example, if your prompt is “cheese” your shtick could go something along the lines of, “Wow, everyone here is really lookin’ Sharp; I hope ya’ll don’t get too Shredded! You little Muensters spending lots of Cheddar tonight? Tipping your bar staff, I hope!”
You will also receive free entry, a drink ticket, and the chance to win a prize!!
If you decide to be a judge, you will be handed a dry-erase board and marker (for the evening).
In between rounds,
local comedians will perform punny sets!!!!
How The Competition Works:
Round 1 - In pairs of two, Intenders approach the stage and are given a prompt from the audience to collaboratively pun about (no one goes on stage alone for the first round and we are making friends here)!
Round 2 - The Intenders come up one by one to share their puns with the topic of their choice decided on before the fun began!
Round 3 - The top 4 punners pun-off head to head until we have a ChampiPun who wins a prize, bragging rights, and big cheers!
Ready for a terrific night of fun and laughter?
Get your tickets today!
Top punners go head to head in the final round.
"The Crypt is a dark throwback to old-school Olympia, bringing all of the counter-culture movements together in one Queer, inclusive space where everyone can appreciate different facets of the Arts: Live Music, Theater, & Comedy, while enjoying specialty cocktails and engaging in an alchemical foray into local wildcrafting and magical infusions to tantalize your senses and also your mind.
We strive to be a community hub and accomplish a cozy, pink glow--a Queer-friendly sanctuary from the reality of modern society.
Come find something delicious, somewhere in the dark, comforting underbelly of the Crypt."
