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 418 of Punwatch, Pundemic Edition, with very special guest Jerzy Gwiazdowski from Punk-Assed: A Pun Cast!

As always, you're doing yourself a disservice if you aren't listening to Punk-Assed: A Pun Cast for Jerzy & Jordan's frankly spectacular wordplay. BUT NOW you can also hear Jerzy on Week Didn't Start, a podcast where Jerzy and Sam Corbin recap the news of the week in the format of Billy Joel's We Didn't Start The Fire, Every. Week. If that pitch doesn't get you subscribin' you're dead inside.
