So what is a Pun-off? A pun is a play on words that suggests different meanings.
The Pun-off is a mock contest in which 15-20 Puntestants compete for the coveted jar of Pepto Dismal. In groups of three, a category is given. They must take turns punning in sentence form until two of the three Puntestants are eliminated by going over time, not using a legitimate pun or repeating a pun within that category. Itís very simple and quality has little to do with the competition. The winners of each round play each other. Audience members may buy a CouPun from RePunzel and pun non-competitively between rounds.
Entrants are among the most annoying people of Humboldt County. For reason unknown, the Pun-off draws local media personalities and many medical professionals to a tryst of shame and loathing as the crowd jeers them on to ruined reputations. Itís Home Groan Fun for all.†Music by The Pun-off Banned who will provide the music, energy and inappropriate sound effects.
