– Connor McDonough-Flynn (@ConMcFlynn)

Connor McDonough-Flynn’s been a comedian for 5-years. Hes gigged all around Ireland and Internationally.

His comedy is bizarre, bold and (un)balanced – he’s an arguably debatable spectator tempter. Connor will have you laughing away as he deals with the debaucherous topics that present themselves daily. The stimulating humdrum thoughts that arouse bemusement. And the oddball anecdotes that evoke howls, from the mouths, on your face. There’s a means to his madcap manoeuvres.

He put on his first solo show (hour special): “I’m Not Special” at The Workman’s Club in Dublin on the 13th of March, 2015.

He’s since began touring:  “I’m Not Special” bringing 5-shows to the Galway Fringe Festival in July 2015.

Unhinged Comedy’s Lineup:

– Joanne McNally (@jomcnally):

Joanne was touring in a show called ‘Singlehood’ when famous Irish funny man, PJ Gallagher, saw her perform and suggested she try her hand at stand up. That was only last year and since then Joanne has toured with PJ’s stand up show ‘Concussion’, appeared on the Late Late, performed at all the major comedy festivals including Body and Soul, Kilkenny Cat Laughs, Independence and was a featured act at the Vodafone Comedy Festival. She’s now headlining her own two man show called ‘Separated At Birth’ which premièred in Vicar street and has been selling out venues across Ireland on its national tour.”

– Ruth Hunter (@ruthokhunter):

Ruth Hunter is an Irish comic with at least six panels per page. the sixth panel usually contains the punchline. She is existent and malleable. When left outside too long she forgets how she got there. She has performed at least several times before you read this sentence. Oh, she won that duck they give you when you joke in public at that bar twice. It is also possible she was just talking to strangers in a bar and already owned at least one small duck.”

Eve Darcy (@EveDarcy1):

“Eve is a relatively new stand-up comedian on the Irish comedy scene, having spent some time ‘doing’ comedy in Vancouver. Nobody invited her to, she just happened to live there for a time and while there decided to ‘break in’ her new comedy self whilst marvelling at such an exotic and strange land. Little did naïve Eve know that breaking in would also entail breaking down. Eve’s fear of commitment and aversion to labels has led to her current comedy ‘style’ being largely undefined, described best (in cheerleadingly encouraging and hopeful sentiments) as, ‘a work in progress’ and ‘evolving’. And as a wise woman once said many times, “shur, isn’t that all any of us can hope to strive for.” That wise woman only ever managed to make average tea. Eve likes tea.”

Roger O’Sullivan (@RogerOSullivan):

Having spent three years of his life muddling his way through a degree in English and History, Roger found himself in a rather unique position. Despite now being a dynamite addition to any pub quiz team, he was close to completely unemployable in any field of work. Hence began his comedy career! For some time now he has dedicated himself to the art of making groups of drunk people laugh in tiny pubs around Ireland. He loves it so much he now travels from town to town in search of more inebriated individuals, attempting to make them laugh with observations about his downtrodden life. His success is varied, yet he soldiers on.”

Battle of the Axe: 5th April 2016

Connor McDonough-Flynn (@ConMcFlynn) #TakingTheStage on the 5th of April 2016 at the Battle of the Axe (@BattleoftheAxe1) in the Ha’penny Bridge Inn (). One of Ireland’s longest established clubs. Tel: 0868156987, battleoftheaxe@hotmail.com…

Thursday December 3rd 9.30pm: Battle of the Axe Comedy Club: The amazing Grainne McKeever MC + Diane O’ Connor, Fiona Frawley, Keith Fox + supports.

Battle of the Axe continues to produce, nourish and establish the careers of the very best performers on the Irish Open Mic Comedy & Singer/songwriter circuit. Established in 1996 the Battle of the Axe presents an eclectic mix of new and established talent.

Stand-up comedy, singer/ songwriters & open mic are premier features of the Battle of the Axe show on Tuesday nights while Thursday night features some of the best Stand-up Comedy, improv and sketch performances to be seen in Dublin city. The gig is one of Ireland’s longest established clubs and continues to feature impromptu guest performances from established luminaries from the International and Irish Comedy Circuit. If your idea of a good night out is to experience the perfect pint in a quintessentially intimate Dublin pub while being entertained by some of the best new and established talent the Nation has to offer drop in to Battle of the Axe at The Ha’Penny Bridge Inn on Tuesday or Thursday nights!

The Ha’ Penny Laughs [The Original Comedy Club at the Pub since 1995] Improv and Stand-up features the last Thursday of every month.

New acts always welcome! See our contact us section for more information.

Besides being resident at The Ha’ Penny Bridge Inn on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Battle of the Axe has also performed and presented shows at the following venues:

  • Players Theatre Trinity College
  • The Crypt Dublin Castle
  • The Irish Film Institute
  • Dublin City University
  • Cashel Arts Festival
  • Durrow Arts Festival
  • Liberty Belle
  • The Bayno Bar
  • Liberties Festival
  • Rosey O Gradys
  • KCR Kimmage
  • Fringe Kilkenny
  • Key largos
  • Shipwright Bar

Our open mic acts have gone on to perform at the highest levels to include Vicar St, O2, Conan O’ Brien, The Comedy Channel, BBC, RTE, Channel 4, The Electric Picnic, The Montreal Festival, Edinburgh, New York, Sydney, London and even The Grand ole Opery

The Battle of the Axe roots itself in The Hoop Bar, Notting Hill Gate, London where Producer/Director and Founder Tony Ferns organised open mic shows for musicians in the early 1980s for 10 years.

Tony established the Battle of the Axe a few years after his return to Ireland in 1996 primarily for actors trying out monologues.

However soon Comedians and Singer/songwriters fell in love with the open mic theme of the Lucky Duck Award and Certificate with audience voting for the No 1 act on the night. And that was it  – The Battle of the Axe was fully born.
