Co-presented by SF Sketchfest 

With countless sold-out shows since its humble beginnings in an Oakland living room, the Bay Area Pun-Off has grown to become a local comedy staple, welcoming wordplayers from all over the country to rejoice in the irresistible power of the world’s most-loathed form of humor, and to compete for an original, one-of-a-kind trophy!
