Register to be a Pun-Off Contestant!

Form will be active until Sept. 5th at 8 pm (CDT, GMT -5).  You are signing up for a lottery, adding your name to a list from which contestants for each 2022 competition in Austin will be selected randomly. Expect an email on or around September 8th letting you know if your name has been selected. Remaining persons will be added to an ordered Stand By List and notified if a contestant withdraws. We almost always have some “no-show” contestants on the day of the event so if you are on the Stand-By List come early before 11:45 am to check-in Saturday, October 8th at the Pun-Off contestant registration table.
