Just do wit!

If there’s a better way to say it, The PUNch-Up will find it.
News headlines: improved!
Movie titles: tightened!
Portmanteaus: revamplified!

Join five of New York City’s most decorated wordsmiths and friends for a night of vocabaret exploring the past, present and future of language. We’ll punch up your evening with word games, anagrams, etymological deep-dives and more.

Hosted by your friends wit benefits: Sam Corbin, Tim Donnelly, Jerzy Gwiazdowski, Ally Spier and Nikolai Vanyo, five of New York City’s best competitive punners. They’ve racked up more than 50 champion titles at the Punderdome, taken home top spots at the O. Henry National Pun-Off in Austin and confused the heck out of America’s Got Talent. Their quips have been featured in The New Yorker, InStyle, The New York Post, The President Show and all over the puniverse.
