Come out and wordplay! You're invited to watch or compete in Pun DMV, our pun contest. There are two parts to the evening:
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. Judges will evaluate each performance on the quality of puns and overall delivery, then reveal the big winner. This event is limited to 10 people. To compete, you must buy a FREESTYLE ticket.
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 winners of either contest get prizes from the Improv (and eternal glory)! Click here for more info on Pun DMV, including some samples of how the games work in practice.
The first show of any night is the "early" show. All other shows are "late" shows. Early shows are seated by time of arrival. The earlier you get to the club, the better your seat will be. Late shows have assigned seating by time of ticket purchase. The earlier you buy tickets, the better your seats will be.
Doors usually open at 6:30 for an early show. (When the early show is at 7, we open at 6.) Seating for late shows usually begins 30 minutes before showtime. If you purchased tickets to a late show and would like to be seated together with another party, call the Improv at 202-296-7008 and inform us ahead of time.
