Wellington Pun Battle 2016

Get ready to groan – it’s the Wellington Pun Battle 2016.

Come along to see Wellington’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 $400 cash prize money on the line, you could say that the stakes are pun-ishing.

The war is on! Wits have been sharpened, wea-puns will be wielded, funny bones will be broken. Will they pun-ble under the pressure?

MC-ed by notorious smart arse, improviser Jennifer O’Sullivan alongside 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
