Event description
Love puns? You’ll have a ball. By The Big HOO-HAA! Melbourne

About this event

The comedy champs at The Big HOO-HAA! Melbourne are causing a racquet this August with a tournament like no other.

The Australian O-Pun brings punning to national competitive stage where it belongs. Competition organisers have rallied Melbourne’s wittiest comedians to take part in a series of punishing wordplay challenges, based on your suggestions. Who will serve up a master stroke, and who will narrowly miss out on Djokovictory?

Hosted by Australia’s favourite (not to mention, only) grammar comedian, Louisa Fitzhardinge, The Australian O-Pun promises to be a grand slam of punprecedented proportions.

"Impossible not to have a good time." – Herald Sun

Please arrive at least 30min before the show to facilitate contact tracing.


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

The Butterfly Club is a licensed venue. Accordingly, patrons under 18 are only allowed on premises in the company of a parent or legal guardian.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We strongly encourage using public transport. The Butterfly Club is a short stroll from Flinders Street station and Melbourne Central, and an even shorter stroll from any tram that travels through Swanston or Collins Streets (get off at Town Hall).

If driving, you can find the best parking rates in the area by visiting carparking.info (link opens in a new window).

How can I contact the venue with any questions?

Please call The Butterfly Club on 03 9663 8107 or reply to your email confirmation.

What's the refund policy?

If you can't attend for Covid-related reasons, you are entitled to a full refund provided you let us know ahead of time.

If the show is cancelled to comply with new restrictions or health directives, you will automatically get a full refund - no need to contact us.

Otherwise there are no refunds: exceptions are made in extraordinary circumstances at the Club's discretion. If there is a sensible reason why you should receive a refund, please contact us and we'll be happy to discuss.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. We have a full record of all attendees and will be able to let you in whether you bring a printed copy of your ticket or not.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
