PUNDERDOME® is New York City’s wild & crazy monthly pun competition created by comedian Jo Firestone and her “Rodney Dangerfield impersonator” dad, Fred. Pun-masters are determined by the “Human Clap-O-Meter” who “accurately and scientifically” assesses levels of audience applause. Warning for the faint of heart: the ‘Dome is THE spectator sport – it gets loud; decide to attend at your own risk!

Part of NYC’s comedy landscape since 2011, GQ Magazine shouted the Punderdome as one of the “5 Funniest Nights in America,” 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.”

“The lowly pun has long been considered the bottom-feeding bristle worm of the comedy world…. That has changed with the arrival of the Punderdome, a now monthly event that has turned punning into a high-functioning competition that is equal parts stand-up, beat poetry” – The New York Post

“(Punderdome is) 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.” – The New York Times

“Can you imagine a more potent cure for the weekday blues? Here was concentrated, unabashed silliness that I longed to bottle and smuggle out in my purse.” – The New Yorker
