Punslingers livened up SAK after the Holidays.

Punslinges is a game show for word nerds held at SAK Comedy Lab (29 S Orange Ave, Orlando, Florida). Diana Rodriguez Portillo the theater operations manager at SAK Comedy Lab arranged to get me in to do a sketch. The audience was full of poets who I recognized from other poetry readings around town. The two hosts were soon to be married, and the coup seated in front of m snuggled during the show. 

Character and personality see just as important as slinging just the right puns. On the back wall of the stage, was a plastic gun which was the prize for the best punslinger. A pun is defined as a joke exploiting the different possible meanings of a word or the fact that there are words that sound alike but have different meanings. After the first few bouts the audience quickly warmed up with groans and laughter.

The next rodeo of Punslingers will be on Memorial Day, Monday May 30th!  Punslingers is a comedy game show where contestants come up with puns to win the favor of the audience through laughs (and groans)! The winners walk away with the title of Champion Punslinger and a mystery prize!

Lovers of poetry, wordplay, Shakespeare, and good-old-fashion 'dad jokes' will love it! Strap on your best western clothes, saddle up, and be part of history at Orlando Punslingers!
