How it Works:

In PUNDITS, contestants sign up in advance to prepare a 3 minute pun-filled routine on a topic of their choice. In HEADLINES, you'll be read a wacky news story and given the chance to give it a proper, wordplay-filled headline. In PUNDEMONIUM, contestants go head-to-head on a topic pulled from a hat, thinking of puns on the spot.
