UK Pun Champion 2017 and co-founder of The Wardrobe Ensemble, Ben Vardy, presents a work in progress performance of his brand new solo show featuring 195 countries and 195 puns.
Do you like puns? Do you like geography? Atlas-t, your wait is over; here is the show that combines your two strange, disparate passions into one glorious, uninterrupted pun-based whole.
Forget Happy Hour, this is a Mappy Hour: 60 minutes of high-concept, high-octane, geographic wordplay from the 2017 UK Pun Champion, Ben Vardy (Pundemonium).
Having spent the last 25 years of his life amusing/annoying his friends and family with an almost uninterrupted barrage of terrible puns, Ben has channelled his obsession/blessing/curse/calling into something useful, something that the whole world is in desperate need of: an hour of country-based puns. You’re welcome, world.
Expect several powerpoint presentations, expect songs, maybe a dance, expect 195 carefully crafted country-based puns, and a handful of bonus rounds jam-packed with spontaneous, off-the-cuff pun creation. You’ll laugh, you’ll groan, you’ll hurl abuse, you’ll throw your chair at Ben, you may regret every decision you’ve ever made, but one thing is for sure: You will hear AT LEAST 195 geographic, country-based puns. Come and witness the birth of something new and strange: The world’s first and greatest Geographic Pun Show.
