Pun Watch: The News Pun Quiz Game

Do you like puns? Do you particularity enjoy punny headlines in newspapers? Would you like to hear masses of them recited in quick succession? If so, you’ll probably enjoy Pun Watch. Pun Watch is a game show in which 3 or 4 funny people try to guess the correct pun-ish headline attached to various news stories from the week. Some of the puns are brilliant, some of them awful, and some are such tenuous stretches they’d make Lilia Stepanova wince (look her up). Either way, there’s lots of ‘em. Even if you don’t like puns, give Pun Watch a go: You’d be surprised how much better puns about an accidentally eaten French camel get when you hear 40 in a row.

Episode 217 of Punwatch, with special guest Jerzy Gwiazdowski and not enough in-depth ice hockey knowledge.

You probably already know Jerzy Gwiazdowski. If you don’t, however, we cannot stress this enough: It is in your best interests to download and listen to Punk Assed: A Pun Cast, Jerzy’s pun podcast. It is punning on another level, and as a fan of puns, you will be a more complete person when you add Punk Assed to your podcast device.

You can also find Punk Assed on Facebook, along with clips of Jerzy & Co competing at Punderdome and the Henry Pun-Off World Championships. You can also read about his punning in a new book called Away With Words by Joe Berkowitz. It’s a look into the world of competitive punning, which is so relevant to any Punwatch listener’s interest it’s not funny, unlike the book.

We’ll also be appearing on an upcoming episode of Punk Assed, so keep an ear out for that.

Punsters: Jerzy Gwiazdowski, Harry Brimage, David Shaw, Alex Malone
Host: Andrew Cherry

Episode 216 of Punwatch, with special guest Andrew McClelland and a fair bit of undignified scrambling to think of songs that sort of reference mazes.

This episode is entitled "'Bama Borax Bowling Blowout". Big thanks to Punwatch contributor Hamish & Special guest Judge Ryan, and Dave for being a good sport.

Andrew's beaut Indie-pop dance night, Mr. McClelland's Finishing School, is wrapping up in October. So if you're in Melbourne, get down to the Bella Union on a Friday night & dance your arse off before it's too late! You can also find Andrew’s DJ and/or comedy stylings around town - keep up with his movements via @andy_mcclelland on Twitter, and on Facebook!
