Battle of the Axe is a weekly open mic night every Tuesday at the Ha’penny Bridge Inn on the Quays. Every week since September 1996, would-be comedians and entertainers from every corner of Dublin, Ireland and beyond have been performing at the Battle of the Axe, making it one of the most consistent open mic shows in the capital.
New and experienced acts, including stand-up comedians, singer/songwriters, sketch performers, actors, clowns, magicians and poets, battle it out for the weekly No.1 spot, the coveted Lucky Duck Award (a plastic statuette of a duck). An audience of local Dubs, excited students and bemused tourists choose the winner.
This is a great night of fun and high jinx in which you get to decide which budding artist gets the ducky. Crowd participation is at the heart of this battle so come prepared to be vocal!
