Word War Wu – Darwin Fringe Festival 2017
July 14, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+9.5
Word War Wu is a celebration of wordplay in a game show format, brought to you by local comedian Ange Wu as part of Darwin Fringe Festival 2017.
Inspired by board games such as Boggle and Scrabble, rap battles, spelling bees, improv games, and the Brooklyn phenomenon of Punderdome, each round will challenge the word-nerdery of participants and spectators alike.
Two teams of local comedians (with audience members) will duke it out for the wordiest of wins.
Come along and see some of Darwin’s funniest word benders in their finest form. Try not to smack anyone for saying ‘cunning linguist’ like it’s a new thing. See if your English teacher is in the audience and has no idea how to spell humongous, yet will argue that it’s not a real word anyway.
What will your answer be when your grandkids ask what you did when Word War Wu came to town?
