Brilliant night for €10 per head upstairs above the pub. Great selection of comedians who targeted couple of guests in our group which was particularly entertaining as well as others in the room. Short interval to run downstairs for more pints. Can't wait to revisit.

Great small venue where we had the pleasure of 3 acts. If you're out in Dublin, head for an hour or so of genuine comedy for a small price. It's an environment where the audience becomes very much part of the show. Also the bar...More

I was there on Saturday with a friend after a terrible week. Great to let everything go and have proper belly laughs. The varied line-up kept it interesting and the gags flowed. Really good value too. Would highly recommend.
