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 a sold-out and truly cringe-worthy shows in Wellington, Nelson and Christchurch, Pun Battle is hitting Auckland this April with worse word-play than ever before. Following semi-finals 1 and 2 on April 20th/21st, the Grand Finals takes place Saturday April 28th, 8pm.

So come along and see Auckland'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 total of over $1,300 (!) cash prize money on the line, you could say that the stakes are pun-ishing.

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 $1,300 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.

Please note that seating is not allocated, so make sure to rock up early to secure a good vantage point for this nonsense.
