- 2 contestants go head-to-head taking turns telling jokes in a tournament competition.
- If a contestant laughs (at their opponent’s OR their own joke) their opponent scores a point
- The contestant with the most points at the end of each round moves onto the next round to compete again
- Each round is 5 min. Have at least 15 minutes of material ready. Depending on the number of contestants some people may compete in four 5 minute rounds.
- Keep jokes on the shorter side, taking up the entire 5 min for 1 joke will get you disqualified!

The contestant who wins all their battles is crowned the winner and receives a full-size championship belt!!
