About us


We’re the friendliest comedy place in town! Known for our Irish welcome and as masters of comedy we are here in the rocking capital of Ireland – Dublin’s fair city – waiting to give you, the laugh of your life.

 The Battle of the Axe Comedy and Open Mic Club has been hosting events since 1996, making it over 24 years old – although it’s a bit like Peter Pan – it will never grow up.

It has been a launch pad for some of the country’s most iconic masters of mirth and it remains one of the most friendly places for new would-be comedians to cut their teeth and perfect their jokes.

We need you! Give your support to the newbies ready to go on stage. Those taking to the spotlight for the very first time. Or lose your sense of public decorum altogether as you roar laughing at well-known circuit comics trying their new jokes on for size.

Either way, the craic will be mighty – and isn’t that just what Dublin is all about?
