THE HA'PENNY LAUGH


Click to find out how beautiful we really are! The Ha'penny Laugh is a two-hour comedy show every Thursday night at 9 pm in the Ha'penny Bridge Inn, beside the Ha'penny Bridge (logically enough!) in the Temple Bar area of Dublin city centre (which is in Ireland, for all you people from very far away).

We do about six improvisation games and have one guest stand-up comic towards the end of the show. The show's been going since August 1995, and we haven't missed one Thursday since then (touch wood!).

Doors open at 9 pm. The room is a recently renovated lounge upstairs from the main bar, it can seat about 50 people, and it has A FULL BAR! Admission is a mere IR£2.50.
