The Punderdome®, New York City’s wild & crazy monthly pun competition – created and hosted by comedian Jo Firestone and her “Rodney Dangerfield impersonator” dad Fred, is coming to the Blueberry Hill Duck Room!! Pun-masters will be determined by the “Human Clap-O-Meter” who “accurately and scientifically” assesses levels of audience applause: http://bit.ly/2sJEQsK

“Mystery Box” prizes will be awarded to the top two competitors. Warning for the faint of heart: the ’Dome is THE spectator sport; it gets loud – decide to attend at your own risk! Action! http://bit.ly/1AOOsoF

Part of NYC’s comedy landscape for the past six years, The New York Times referred to the Punderdome® as the “hilarious cult-favorite pun competition” and said it was “both an endearingly homemade and impressively high-caliber show during which astute wordsmiths (including a crew of beloved regular punsters) spin clever and very funny puns to a packed house.” GQ Magazine shouted the Punderdome® as one of the “5 Funniest Nights in America,” (http://bit.ly/1Ib9JHo) and quoted comedian Chris Gethard on why it’s great: “The crowd. You’d think you were at the Roman Colosseum. They’re passionate, to a level that feels dangerous. And to reiterate, this is a pun competition.”

Other Reviews!
* The New Yorker: “(The PUNDERDOME®) was unabashed silliness that I longed to bottle and smuggle out in my purse.”
* The New York Post: “The lowly pun has long been considered the bottom-feeding bristle worm of the comedy world…. That has changed with the arrival of Punderdome 3000, a now monthly event that has turned punning into a high-functioning competition that is equal parts stand-up, beat poetry …”
* St. Louis Post-Dispatch: “When Jo Firestone left her St. Louis home to become a comedian in New York City, she never thought her father would end up as her stage partner.”
