NYC's Ultimate Pun Competition
Hosted by a self-proclaimed “Rodney Dangerfield impersonator” and his daughter (Fred and Jo Firestone), PUNDERDOME 3000 is a pun competition for weirdos and pun-lovers alike! All are welcome to attend this wild-n-crazy round robin event, but only the first 12 individuals/duos to sign-up at the door will have a chance to compete. Pun-masters are determined through a “human clap-o-meter” system voted on by the audience. Great big kitchen appliance prizes and celebrity judges guaranteed. Catch the action on YouTube in the video here!

When & Where
Housing Works Bookstore Cafe
Housing Works Bookstore Cafe is one of downtown New York’s most vital cultural institutions, presenting an eclectic mix of events -- from readings and concerts to comedy nights and storytelling competitions – featuring many of today’s most exciting artists. The bookstore is staffed almost entirely by volunteers and 100 percent of its profits go to Housing Works, Inc., which provides housing, healthcare, job training, and advocacy for New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS. As an independent cultural center, it offers patrons a unique opportunity to join the fight against AIDS and homelessness simply by buying or donating books; eating at our cafe; coming to concerts, readings, and special events; or volunteering on our staff.
