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 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, you could say that the stakes are pun-ishing.

July's heat starring!

MC'd by Wellington's favourite over enthusiastic gender mess Hugo Grrrl: Drag King, and refereed by local Christchurchian art-trash Tawdry Trainwreck.

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.

And make sure to check out our The Christchurch Pun Battle Grand Final! later in the year.

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: 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.
