Pun Slam: Capital Punishment

  • The Moat 176 Little Lonsdale Street Melbourne, VIC, 3000 Australia (map)

Think you're pretty punny? This is your chance to prove it! The Pun-ishment is leaving the Capital, as Canberra's competitive pun slam comes to Melbourne! We're crossing The Moat, to show you a Wheely good time.

Capital Punishment is part rap battle, part poetry slam, part open mic night, and ALL DAD JOKE.

How do you compete? Write two minutes of puns on the hot topic 'coffee', and prepare to read them to the audience! The best contestants will face wild pun challenges, with the two best performers of the night squaring up in a 'pun off' to crown Melbourne's official puntiff. Or you can just come for the groans and watch. Join hosts John and Georiga, with special guest comedian Louisa Fitzhardinge, in the Melbourne debut of the show that has Australia moaning.

In the end, there can be only pun.
