Bring Your Own Chair - Sit back, relax and groan as South Jersey residents vie for the title of Dad Joke Champion

About this event

Sign up online here. It's free to compete. No, you don't need to be a dad to play.

What do you call a prehistoric restaurant? A diner-saur!

This is the day you've been training for since you traded in your Mazda Miata for a Chrysler Minivan. Collect your jokes and let your kids give you the pep talk you need to take home the trophy!

Rules are simple. It's a 1 on 1 competition where each contestant takes a turn telling the lamest/daddest joke possible. Jokes do not need to be original. Each contestant will tell three jokes per round. Points are earned by making your opponent laugh or smile. The contestant with the most points advances to the next round until we have a winner (judging panel of moms will break ties). Jokes must be family-friendly.

The winner receives $250. Runner-up will also win a $125 prize. Event benefits the Perkins Center for the Arts.

Check out for inspiration.
