Get ready to groan!

After two years of sold-out and truly cringe-worthy shows all over the country, the time has come. The first ever National Pun Battle Final! Witness history this November as NZ's regional pun champions go head-to-head in a one-night-only wit-erary show-down.

Wits have been sharpunned, wea-puns will be wielded, funny bones may well be broken. Get your tickets now to see Aotearoa's smartest alecks, wordiest nerds and biggest pun-ks, punslingers and pun-dits battle it out in this intense and hilarious pun-off. With over $1000 cash prize money on the line, you could say that the stakes are pun-ishing.

ONE NIGHT ONLY! Saturday November 16th, 8pm at Old St Paul's. (Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8pm. Cash bar available.)

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.

Stay tuned for our national finalist announcements!

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. The event space is located up stairs, but please get in touch before the gig if you have any accessibility concerns so we can best help you out.
