Special Events

This Friday night, September 21, sees the long-awaited debut of  Battle of the Axe on Culture Night kindly made possible and hosted by the wheelchair accessible venue at Verve Live Agency.
A vision of Battle of the Axe owner Tony Ferns for many years, family-companionable comedy and open mic available to everybody will finally take centre stage as part of Culture Night at VERVE.IE 11-15 Erne Street Upper, Dublin 2. There will be four different shows, starting at 6, 7, 8 and 9.p.m respectively lasting 45 minutes each.
Confirmed acts that’ll perform at the wheelchair-friendly shows include stand-up acts: Ciaran Mc Mahon MC, Jeff Keough [Comedian and juggler entertainer], Sean Ogedegbe (17 year-old Meath Native – stand-up comedy debut – Culture Night!), Mags McHugh, Arthur Sheridan Comedy poet), Aideen McQueen MC, Brian Keegan, Maedhbh Darmody, Alex O’ Connor (17 year-old Galway native – stand-up comedy debut on Culture Night!), Saoirse Smith, Mark McConnell, Laughter Lines Improv and pop-rock band Nasty Jams.
As comedian Mags McHugh suggests ‘after carrying around a wheelchair up and down stairs at venues in Ireland and UK for 4 years it’s a revolution to be able to attend a wheelchair-obliging comedy night’.
Those who attend must be there ten minutes before the shows start.
Admission is FREE, and ticket information can be found at Eventbrite.ie and www.battleoftheaxe.com

The players create quick witted sketches, scenes and songs from whatever suggestions are thrown at them by the audience to create a show that’s fast, feelgood and always unpredictably funny. There’s a referee on hand to steer the entertainment, call any fouls.

9PM: Live Music!

Nasty Jams are a four-piece rock band whose sound has been described as ‘Heavy Pop’. They play rock and pop music with infectious energy. They will play some original songs and their unique versions of some classic songs. 

Some of these songs have never been attempted by a guitar band! With almost 200 years’ experience between them –  they never fail to deliver. Always entertaining – they promise to be a fun finale to the Battle of the Axe select presentation at Verve
