Get ready to groan! Wits have been sharpened, wea-puns will be wielded, funny bones may well be broken. Will our pun-dits pun-ble under the pressure?! With a whopping total of over $1,500 (!) cash prize money on the line, you could say that the stakes are pun-ishing.

After a sold-out and truly cringe-worthy shows in 2017, The Wellington Pun Battle is back with a spectacular year-long tournament and worse word-play than ever before. Come along and see the smartest alecks and wordiest nerds the capital has to offer and battle it out in this intense and hilarious head-to-head pun-off.

Hosted by everyone’s favourite friendly neighbourhood transvestite, Mr. 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, improvisor, 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: Drag King to confirm your spot.

Please note: seating is not allocated so arrive early to nab a good vantage point. Latecomers may not be admitted, and doorsales are cash only.
