Event description
A PUNdamentally silly game show where comedians compete, audience judges, & everybody wins -- for Greater DC Diaper Bank & Horton's Kids!

About this event

In this interactive show from Grassroots Comedy DC, comedians and audience members out-clever each other through several rounds of not-very-intense game play! Think JackBoxesque games with your funniest friends for a good cause, plus the opportunity to play along or just judge others.

We have stand up comedian Josh Kuderna (DC Improv, Arlington Drafthouse), improviser extraordinaire Kalynn Chambers (Washington Improv Theater), and pun circuit champion Logan Anbinder! Hosted by the stand up comedian that WTOP called "the arbiter of all things pun," Dana Fleitman. Plus, we've got extremely overqualified vocalist, Ben Boecker, closing things out!

OUR PARTNERS

You'll have a great time AND be doing a good deed -- this show is raising funds for Greater DC Diaper Bank and Horton's Kids!

Greater DC Diaper Bank empowers families and individuals in need throughout DC, Maryland, and Virginia by providing an adequate and reliable source for basic baby needs and personal hygiene products. 1 in 5 families in the DMV-area lives below the Federal Poverty Level, and their four unique programs collect the supplies and products families need to be safe, happy, and healthy.

Horton’s Kids empowers children growing up in DC’s most under-resourced communities so that they graduate from high school ready for success in college, career, and life. They serve 500 children in grades K-12 living in Wellington Park & Stanton Oaks – neighborhoods that have been profoundly impacted by decades of disinvestment and barriers to opportunity. Your impact is dramatic: children in Horton’s Kids are twice as likely to graduate from high school.

DO IT FOR THE CHILDREN, Y'ALL!

WANT TO PUN?

We're looking for a few audience volunteers to compete in the PUNDEFEATED tournament as part of the show. Basically, you'll join on camera and get to think fast, coming up with puns on the spot. The stakes are low and the praise is high, so make sure to select "PUNDEFEATED Contestant" on the ticket options if you'd like to join! We may solicit more volunteers throughout the show, but this ensures your spot. If you're on the fence...get off the fence. It's dangerous up there. Come down and join!

WHERE IS THE LINK!?!

We get it, you've got to be in the Zoom where it happens! We'll send a link with the Zoom link about an hour before show time.
