Get ready to groan! Wits have been sharpened, wea-puns will be wielded, funny bones may well be broken. Will our competitors pun-ble under the pressure?!

After sold-out and truly cringe-worthy shows all over NZ, Pun Battle is hitting Nelson again with worse word-play than ever before.

Come along this May to see Nelson’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 over $400 cash prize money on the line AND a spot in The NZ Pun Battle National Final! up for grabs, you could say that the stakes are pun-ishing.

One night only in 2018! Saturday May 11th, 8pm at Ghostlight.

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.

Enter now! Why not give it a pun-t! There's $400 in prize money to be won. Are you a writer, improviser, comedian, or are your friends just really sick of your incessant and unsolicited word-play? Come to a place where your genius will be appreciated. First in, first serve. DM Hugo Grrrl to confirm your spot.

Please note! Seating is not allocated so make sure to arrive early to nab a good vantage point. Doors open one hour before showtime, latecomers may not be admitted, and door sales are cash only. The event space is located upstairs, but please get in touch before the gig if you have any accessibility concerns so we can best help you out.

Make sure to follow the Hugo Grrrl page for updates on more dope, affordable gigs near you.
