PUNCH

Punchline Punchout is a laid-back cutthroat comedy competition that embraces the urgency of procrastination and gently forces comedians to do what they do best. Be funny, and be judged… in a boxing ring of wits!

Comedians are put into teams and then paired against their comedy rivals and are each given the same writing challenge. They have 24 hours to write brand new material based on the challenge and will compete back to back in front of a live audience and 3 “celebrity” judges!

This show was originally created 5 years ago in Minneapolis, Minnesota and has been performed in comedy clubs and festivals around the Midwest. Last year the show made it’s debut in Los Angeles, so May 31st is the one year anniversary of the show tackling the west coast!

Punchlines will be thrown, ego’s will be bruised! Who will be victorious?!

Hosted by Andy Erikson and Amber Preston, with music provided by DJ Scuba (aka Alex Stein)

With comedy from…

In the months following Edinburgh, “Millennial” has enjoyed tremendous critical approval and sell-out runs and performances at the Soho Theatre in London’s West End, Lund Comedy Festival in Sweden, and Melbourne and Sydney International Comedy Festivals in Australia.
