All puns intended! Come enjoy the Improv's new pun competition. The night features two contests -- one where contestants write the puns in advance, and one where puns are made up on the spot. Win either contest and you can go home with some kick-butt prizes. This event is hosted by Dana Fleitman and produced by Laura Powell, the host of #ManicPunday on Twitter and a veteran of the O. Henry Pun-Off World Championship. Admission is just $5. Details are on dcimprov.com or you can zap Laura an e-mail (dailysuitcase [at] gmail.com).

Christina is the friend you wish you had in high school – she’s silly, sarcastic and always in the middle of a good time. Christina has been a favorite on talking head shows (such as "Chelsea Lately"). She was one of the top finishers on "Funniest Wins," TBS's comedy competition show. She's an accomplished comedy writer with a background in animation. And she's the start of two podcasts: "That's Deep Bro," exploring her love of philosophy, and "Your Mom's House," with her husband and fellow comedian Tom Segura.
