 FABU-D guest MC on Oct 24th


The Battle of the Axe continues to PRODUCE, NOURISH, and ESTABLISH the careers of the very best performers on the Irish open mic comedy & singer/songwriter circuit.

Established in 1996, Battle of the Axe presents an eclectic mix of new and established talent. Stand-up comedy, singer/songwriters & open mic, are premier features of the Battle of the Axe show on Tuesday nights.

Here acts compete on the open mic for the legendary The Lucky Duck Award. A hugely popular Award that can date as far back as 1996! Not bad for a twenty-three year old duck.

Meanwhile THURSDAY night features some of the best stand-up comedy, improv and sketch performances to be seen in Dublin city.

The gig is one of Ireland’s longest established clubs and continues to feature impromptu guest performances from established luminaries from the International and Irish Comedy Circuit.

If your idea of a good night out is to experience the perfect pint in a quintessentially intimate Dublin pub, while being entertained by some of the best new and established talent the Nation has to offer, then please, drop in to Battle of the Axe at the Ha’Penny Bridge Inn on Tuesday or Thursday nights!
