Get ready to groan! Wits have been sharpunned, wea-puns will be wielded, funny bones may well be broken. Will our punticipants pun-ble under the punishing pressure?! Or will there be a ... pun hit wonder?
After a heated sold-out debut season, The Pun Battle is returning to Auckland with worse word-play than ever before.
Check out our 2018 special encore pun-off on Friday October 12th at 8pm - a teaser before our main event;
The 2019 Auckland Pun Battle Championships!
Semi-final #1: Saturday March 9th
Semi-final #2: Saturday June 1st
Grand Final: Saturday July 27th
So come along and see Auckland's smartest alecks, wordiest nerds and biggest pun-ks, punslingers and pun-dits battle it out in an intense and hilarious head-to-head pun-off. With a total of over $1,300 (!) cash prize money on the line, you could say that the stakes are pun-ishing.
Hosted and refereed over-enthusiastic gender-mess Hugo Grrrl.
Expect utter pundemonium as we decide once and for all if the pun is mightier than the sword. Because, as we all know, a good pun is its own re-word.
