Comedy Clubs: For a good laugh ...

As everybodys knows, the Irish like a good laugh and are known to have great humour themselves ...

... so why don't check out a comedy club ???

There are two clubs, who are close to my heart for the simple reason that I perform there myself on a regular basis. Both are run by Comedy Dublin. Comedy Dublin is an improvisation group, but we also have Stand up shows on a regular basis. It is brilliant !!! The venues are The Belvedere on the North side of the Liffey and the other Sheehan's on the South Side, just of Grafton Street. Check out the webside

If you like to come along contact me and I get you a student discount. Ticket will be EUR 5.00 per person. A great bargain !!!

The " Halfpennybridge Inn" ( just on the corner of the Halfpenny Bridge on the Temple Bar side ) has a stand up comedy club on Wednesday and Sunday nights. It is called the "Capital Comedy Club ". The same venue has also a stand up night / songwriters on the Tuesday, called the "Battle of the Axe" on the Tuesday and a comedy club at Thursday.
It usually starts at 2130 hrs and is held in the bar upstairs. It is a small venue, which makes it usually a great atmosphere and there are all kind of comedians ... newcomers and professionals.

Also, brilliant are the comedy evenings in the " International Bar". They also have a club upstairs and have comedy almost every night ( stand up and Improv).

Comedy Clubs: Comedy

Ha'penny Bridge Inn in Wellington Quay, Temple bar is a great comedy club, new acts are welcome even if you just want to chance your arm. Call 01 6770616 for details.

International Bar located on Wicklow Street is opened every night with different comedy acts. Tel 01-677 9250

Laughter Lounge. This venue is huge l found this palce too big to enjoy. Very expensive entry fee in, around €40 of course that depends on who is on.. I think you would be better off with either the International or the Comedy club.

Dress Code Again no trainers or sports shoes.

Capital Comedy Club @Ha'Penny Bridge Inn: Hilarious Night Out

Being a regular punter at comedy clubs back home in England when I visited Dublin recently I decided to give a comedy club there a look. And so it was that I went to the Capital Comedy Club (every Wednesday and Sunday at the Ha'Penny Bridge Inn. I have to say it one was one of the best nights out I have ever had. The compere (Simon O'Keeffe I think) was superb, getting a very lively crowd settled in and warmed up very quickly. The acts that followed were mostly Irish comedians as well as an Australian and were all excellent, I was a little worried that I mightnt be able to understand the accents or local references but this was not a problem and they made very few references to subjects/places non-Irish people wouldnt be familiar with. The club filled up very quickly so if you do go (which you should) get there early, it is well worth it and is great value for money

Dress Code no dress code

Comedy Clubs: A different start to your night

Thursdays Fridays and Saturdays you can start your night with something a little different.
An attrocious MC (he will sound familiar- he is someone famous' little brudder) introduces 2 or 3 excellent comics.

Get there early (8:30 ish) and get a drink in the bar and get close to the door for the stairs, cos the seats upstairs fill very fast. If you are on a stool on the stage you know you will be in trouble. The Bar upstairs is small, so have a drink ready to bring up.

2-3 hours entertainment for E10.

Dress Code Yeah right. anything goes, but beware of comedians who need a victim- they pick the ones who stand out-
"Jaysus Love Carlsberg don't do skirts, and even if they did they would be a *#~@ better than that one!"

Ha'penny Bridge Inn: Open stage

Every Tuesday the stage is open at Ha'Penny Bridge Inn.

Everyone who thinks he's funny can go on stage as a part time comedian. Musicians as well!

Some were really talented when we were there - it was great fun! On the picture you can see the winner of the evening - an old fella with his trumpet. What an entertainer!
