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 $2k cash prize money on the line, you could say that the stakes are pun-ishing.
After a sold-out and truly cringe-worthy shows across NZ, 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.
Three 2020 heats!
Saturday April 18th
Friday June 12th
Saturday August 22nd
and our regional final on Friday November 6th.
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 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. No stag dos. 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.
