SPOTLIGHT

Come out and wordplay! The DMV's very own pun contest now has its very own spin-off. The night consists of two events. In the Remix, contestants register in advance and prepare a 4-5 minute pun masterpiece. 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. You (yes, you!) could be on stage -- e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

The Remix

In a Pun DMV "Freestyle" competition, people deliver pun-filled solo speeches built around a single theme. The Remix is for everything else. This event is open to teams, one to three people in size. Perform a sketch, sing a song, do a PowerPoint presentation, improve on a classic movie scene, show us a video you prepared in advance, bust out some props. Whatever you do, just make your presentation punderful, and no more than 4-5 minutes in length. E-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

The Tournament (up to 20 spots)

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.
