The UK Pun Championships 2023 Winner Announced: Lee Brace

The UK Pun Championships returned on Monday 13th February 2023 at De Montfort Hall in Leicester. Celebrating the great British pun with contestants from all across the UK where Lee Brace, aka ‘Attila the Pun’, was crowned winner!

Joining him in the ring were: Ben Emmett, Cosmic Kat, Daniel Edison, Geoff Alderman, Kat Molinari, Pauline Eyre and Stevie Vegas. The event was hosted by Jason Byrne.

Award-winning actor and comedian Lee Brace was delighted with the win and said “I can’t quite believe I did it! It’s been a lot of fun writing so many puns (over 200 in total!) but getting to perform them in front of a sell-out crowd, at De Montfort Hall, in a full-size wrestling ring was something else! Magical!”

Lee is now looking forward to performing his brand new character comedy show, ‘A Night with Ross Feratu and Friends’ this May at Brighton Fringe. Go to www.brightonfringe.org for tickets and you can follow him on Twitter for updates and more punny stuff! @bracealmighty

Some of the puns that helped Lee take the crown were:

  • I took my Spanish friend for a picnic at the weekend. He said “Gracias!” I said, “Yeah, I should have bought a blanket!”

  • When I was a kid, my Mum used to run a dating site for chickens. She did whatever she could to make hens meet.

  • I’ve just applied for a job as a waiter. Well, someone has to put food on the table.

  • Whenever there’s an eclipse, my Dad starts shaking and twitching. Lunar-tick!

  • For Christmas, I bought my girlfriend a book about Hypochondria. Well, what do you buy the woman who has everything?

The audience voted for their preferred pun by wooping and cheering and the favourite then went through to the next round. Ultimately, the two finalists, Daniel Edison and Lee Brace battled it out until the overall winner was crowned.

The UK Pun Championship also spawned the social media phenomenon which is #UKPunDay; a day that champions Britain’s love of puns and wordplay, and which now takes place every year on the second Monday of February.

I’ve known of this wacky cunt’s existence for less than 5 minutes and I already don’t think I’ve ever despised anyone more.

This travesty of justice brings the good name of north Northamptonshire into disrepute.

Not a pun, given the etymology of lunatic is people going mad because of the full moon.

Like, maybe “tic/tick” is half a pun.

The waiter one is okay, and if I thought of it while talking to someone I’d be quite pleased, tbf.
