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?

Find out at The Wellington Pun Battle Semi-Finals.
- Thursday, July 27th, 8 pm.
- Friday, July 28th, 8 pm.

This July, 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.

MC'd by our last winner Matt Powell and 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.
