Part of New York City’s comedy landscape since 2011, Punderdome is a wild and crazy pun competition created by a “Rodney Dangerfield impersonator” and his alleged daughter: Fred and comedian Jo Firestone.

Having done more than 90 monthly shows in the city over eight years, Punderdome takes over tonight’s Podcast Mixtape as it prepares to transition from stage to podcast!

Join Fred Firestone as he hosts a night of competitive, spontaneous pun-making. Six individuals/duos will be selected from sign-ups at the door to compete with six Punderdome Champs for kitchen appliances and “As Seen on TV” items. Pun-masters are chosen by the “Human Clap-O-Meter.” Warning for the faint of heart: the ‘Dome is a spectator sport. It gets loud. Decide to attend at your own risk!
