Come out and wordplay! The DMV's very own pun contest now has its very own spin-off. The night is hosted by Dana Fleitman and consists of two events:
The Remix: In a Pun DMV "Freestyle" competition people deliver pun-filled solo speeches built around a single punning 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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to compete, or if you have any questions about participating in this event.
Remix teams so far: Emily Simon, Logan Anbinder, the Natural Disaster Club
The Tournament: 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.
The winners of either contest get prizes from the Improv (and eternal glory)!
