A must do when in Dublin. Tuesdays and Thursdays open stage. I'm so happy I was one of the comics a couple of times already and for sure I'll be back again. The MCs are fantastic, the host is grand and the audience just lovely!...More

I tried open mic comedy in April. Very welcoming people. Tony runs a great night and is very supportive of acts. Great upstairs room for performances and the building itself is a gem. Right in the city centre. A big plus for acts and audiences.

Last reviewer was unlucky. This night has been going for over 20 years with a roster of MCs who've been first rate the times I've gone. Friendly, welcoming night with new acts balanced out by more seasoned ones, and professionals dropping in to hone their...More

I would like to point out that I've been to all comedy shows in Dublin, both free and paid, pub and theatre. This has been by far the worse experience ever, but I couldn't find any other show on a Tuesday so that's how we...More

A fun evening of comedy. Our group of friends really enjoyed it. Also a great Dublin pub in general, with lots of character and great staff.

It is a nice place to laugh with family, friends, for couples or even alone. I recommend to everyone and if you are tourist you should go there at least once! You will enjoy for sure.
