Stand Up Comedy – Downstairs Bar – THE STAGS HEAD

Doors 8:15pm, show starts at 9pm

FREE ENTRY & FREE ICE-CREAM!!

The Comedy Crunch has the best in stand up comedy EVERY Sunday, Monday & Tuesday night downstairs in The Stags Head, Dame Lane.

The Comedy Crunch began on November 16th 2008 when Colm McGlinchey started the event in Doyles pub, Dublin. The event then ran in Shebeen Chic where Danny O’Brien joined the team before moving to it’s current residence of The Stags Head.

Walk-ins welcome and Good for groups or parties.

“Some of the best up and coming comedians in Ireland can be seen at the comedy crunch, all for free with free popcorn and ice cream! And dont people know it!! It’s an excellent night to get out and about mid week [Sunday and Mondays] but make sure you get there early because chances are everyone else will have the same idea.

Prepare to be crammed into a tiny room downstairs, although it has to be said that staff will always try and find you a seat even if it does end up a bit like playing tetris.” – Sandra B.

“If you are planning to be in Dublin on a Sunday or Monday night (and trust me, nothing you could be doing on a Monday night will be better than this – nothing) you have GOT to make this part of your evening.

I usually expect to be fairly underwhelmed at comedy shows, small club comedians just don’t tend to have the greatest material.  These comedians were absolutely hilarious and had me laughing the entire night.  It was also such a great way to get a taste of Irish culture and humor as each comedian gave insight into their childhoods, adolescence and families.  With an internationally and culturally varied audience, it was pretty awesome to see how everyone could relate on these subjects.  Even the host comedian that introduced each act, was absolutely hysterical.  The only downside was the absolute nightmare New Jersey girl (shocking…) in the audience.  Thankfully, the comedians shredded her.

It also doesn’t hurt that this takes place in the Stag’s Head (also reviewed), one of the most beautiful bars in Dublin and is at no cost!  It’s free!  Just go!” – Joy E.

Packed Out and Buzzing at the Comedy Crunch

The Comedy Crunch ThumbnailGigged in the Comedy Crunch last week, Sunday the 4th of August. The Crunch has built up quite a name for itself since it started in November 2008. Taking the Internet by storm and supplying the local comedy scene with a highly enjoyable stage (pallet) two days a week. Held every Sunday and Monday weekly, the Comedy Crunch is a highly sought after show, for it’s a delightful gig for any comedian to play.

Buckled in the corner I waited for my slot to arrive. I was on first after the break. The place was packed, floorboard to ceiling, set in the rustic ground floor of the Stag’s Head. Lights scattered about, old wooden trimmings, ancient pictures, the place has the feel of your grandparents basement; heading down and escaping away for a few laughs and a bit of debauchery while the world goes about it’s own ways above.

There were people from all over the planet in, as there always is, every corner of the globe, making the gig a great barometer of how one’s material will travel.

Colm McGlinchey was the evening’s MC, and he did a fine job riling up the eager audience, setting the ambiance of what was to be a fantastic night of comedy. First up Matt Sadlier, followed by Donal Vaughan, and Eleanor Tiernan rounded off the first half to a wild hurrah. The audience was laughing throughout, and entering into the break, the anticipation for the halftime snack only added to the night’s vivacious energy.

The audience grew at the break; credit must be given to the comedians in the first half, for they rocked the house. I’ll not be going into reviews or my own opinions on comedian’s performances, for being a comedian myself, and one that was on the bill on this particular evening, any comments, in my opinion, would be out of place.

The mood and excitement in the room spoke for it self, a jovial picture painted, as I’m sure the reviews on TripAdvisor depict. The audience member’s hands were clapping, mouths open and roaring, seats rattling from all the chuckles. Their satisfied newly sweetened bellies voicing their laughing approval for all the performers. And as we all know, comedians love approval.

I took the stage after the break with a 10-minute set prepared, and with the already animated audience the gig went swimmingly, was an absolute pleasure and I left the stage buzzing, racing off to the bar to grab an auld pint of the black stuff to quell the nerves that were rushing around the head.

Headliner Trevor Browne brought the night home and left the stage to applause and cheers after leaving the audience with a lovely little ditty with his guitar.

As the audience members filled out, the night’s stimulating energy stayed bouncing around the room, another successful gig for the Comedy Crunch, once again proving it self to be one of the best gigs in Dublin; I’ll say again, an absolute pleasure.

If you haven’t been in you’re missing out. The best comedians in Ireland take the stage every Sunday and Monday of each week, doors at 8:15. Colm McGlinchey and Danny O’Brien at the helm, and a fine ship they run indeed, in the basement of the Stag’s Head. And, it’s FREE ENTRY ladies and gentleman! Free ice cream as well…

I look forward to taking the stage again in the Comedy Crunch. Thanks to the lads for having me in.
