It's an event where you might be rewarded more for groans than for cheers.

Pundamonium is a slam-style pun contest. Contestants make puns based on prompts like "A day at the beach" and are judged by select members of the audience. The players go two rounds before the top four face off in the final pun-off.

Pundamonium events have been held in Madison and Minneapolis, where founder Art Allen paired with the Loft Literary Center for the event.
