It’s the height of summer and the heat is on. Join us on July 8 and crank up the AC unit in your mind: Vocabaret is serving up some HOT TAKES!
How do we talk about climate change? Who the f*** is “Scoville” and what does spicy food have to do with their “unit?” What are the tricks of the trade for controversy-slinging hot take pundits? And can we stop them??
And of course, the Vocabaret crew will share our hottest, face-melting takes about language: we will then leave it to you — our live and streaming audience — to decide whose takes are punditry and whose are pun-ditzy.
Featuring live music from Feral Teen and more special guests!
Vocabaret stars New York City’s most-decorated wordsmiths as they host a night of raucous wordplay, etymological deep-dives and alphabetic absurdity as they pull words apart and explore the link between language and our daily lives. Each show is centered around a theme and features games, challenges and special guests.
Anagrams: unscrambled! Entendres: doubled! Portmanteaus: revamplified!
Hosted by your friends wit benefits: Sam Corbin, Tim Donnelly, Jerzy Gwiazdowski, Ally Spier and Nikolai Vanyo, five heavyweight champions of the word. They’ve racked up more than 100 titles at the Punderdome, taken home trophies at the Pun-Off World Championships and confused the heck out of America's Got Talent. Their quips have been featured in The New Yorker, InStyle, The New York Post, The President Show and all over the puniverse.
