Description [edit]
There's nothing incredibly sexy about Shank Hall. It's not the biggest music venue in the city (but its capacity of 300 is great for that up-close and personal concert feeling), but it is one of the best places to see a show. No bright lights and glitter on the outside of this place, but Shank Hall always pulls in great national acts, as well as Milwaukee regulars like Pat McCurdy and Paul Cebar.

Pundamonium Pun Slam: The Milwaukee Pun Slam!

One by one, 10 contestants have two minutes each to make puns based on prompts they have received ahead of time. Each contestant is immediately judged by five members of the audience, who have been selected before the show to be judges. They rank each punner on a scale of 1 to 10, often with hilariously long decimals and other commentary. Then they do it again, only this time contestants get their prompts on stage and only have 30 second to think and another two minutes to make puns. The top four contestants go head to head in a final pun-off. Want to compete? Just show up! It's first come, first served. Doors at 7:00PM, puns at 8:00PM. $6 at the door.
