Come out and wordplay! You're invited to watch or compete in Pun DMV, our pun contest. The night features two events, based on the O. Henry Pun-Off World Championship. In the Freestyle, contestants register in advance and prepare short pun-filled speeches. In the Tournament, people sign up the night of the show for an on-the-spot pun battle. Win either contest and you can go home with some prizes.

THE TOURNAMENT: An on-the-spot punning tournament featuring up to 16 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.

THE FREESTYLE: 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.

The May 16 Freestyle lineup: Lisa Bonos, Erika Ettin, Rachel Gross, Annie Lynn, Sophie Miller, Elliot Postell, Jesse Rifkin, Jon Schlaifer, Aaron Schwartzbaum, Daniel Shore, Emily Simon.
