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

After sold-out shows all over the country, The Pun Battle is back in Christchurch with worse word-play than ever before. Come along to see Ōtautahi’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 cumulative total of over $1,300 (!) 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.

Three shows in 2019!
Semi-final #1: Friday May 17th, 8pm.
Semi-final #2: Friday July 5th, 8pm.
Grand Final: Friday August 30th, 8pm.

Created and MC'd by Wellington's favourite over enthusiastic gender mess - award-winning comedy and cabaret producer, 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 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 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.

A Rolling Stone is an accessible venue, but if you do have any accessibility concerns, please get in touch well in advance of the gig so we can best help ya out.

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