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 August 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 $1200 (!) cash prize money on the line, you could say that the stakes are pun-ishing.

Three shows only!
Semi-Final #1: Thursday August 23rd, 8pm.
Semi-Final #2: Friday August 24th, 8pm.
Grand Final: Saturday August 25th, 8pm.

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 $1200 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 to confirm your spot.
