The Wellington Pun Battle is back, for one night only.

You wanted more, and we listened. For those who missed out on seeing our sold-out championship final in August (or those who couldn't get enough), our encore showcase is your last chance to see the city's finest wordsmiths in action in 2017. Get your tickets quick, folks!

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 show earlier this year, the Wellington Pun Battle is back in August, with worse word-play than ever before.

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 $500 cash prize money on the line, you could say that the stakes are pun-ishing.

Our 2017 will be judged by our last winner Ben Ashby, and refereed by 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.
