Small, intimate little venue that filled up fast. Four very different comedians, the show was just over an hour long but very topical and up to date comedy. None of those old 1980's gags. You even get free ice cream and the bar is priced rather well in line with other drinking venues in Dublin. One I'd recommend to others.

Was with my 17 year old daughter so was a little dubious when we arrived as the place seemed a bit seedy. We needn't have worried - the humour was good, similar to what you could expect at the Edinburgh fringe, the crowd (of about 40, max capacity in the basement) were a mixed bunch and we didn't feel out...

Went on reviews and wasn't disappointed, a lovely old pub, excellent hospitality and very entertaining. The acts were varied and the compare not too harsh on the front row! I would love to go again if I'm in Dublin but it's on Sunday Monday and Tuesday so weekenders miss out on a treat! Very busy and hot in the basement... More

Very local setting, in the basement of The Stag's Head. Completely free (with ice cream included)! The 4 comedians were of an excellent standard, many laughs were had. Visited on a Monday night, place was rammed full! Barman seemed a bit overworked. 100% recommend.

Visited Dublin recently and used Tripadvisor to recommend attractions. The Comedy Crunch was one of those and we visited Tuesday and for the extra show with Danny O'Brien previewing his Fringe act. Amazing. The basement bar is small and intimate and this just adds to the charm. All the acts were excellent and just required a donation at the door... More

This is a free comedy show. We visited on a Monday night and i would advice anyone who is thinking of going to get there as soon as the doors open at 8.15. It starts at 9 and is in the basement of the stags head pub. It is very popular and I can see why, it is non stop... More

Went along to see the show on a Sunday night and was impressed with the quality of the comedians and how well the show was run. Definitely suggest getting along as soon as the doors open because it's a rather small bar, and it's very popular show. Highly recommend.

Located in the basement of the Stags Head Pub near the temple bar area Comedy crunch does free comedy shows a few times a week. We caught a show tonight and had such a great time! Did I mention it's free , oh and they also give you free ice cream at the half time break! You give a donation... More

Visiting Dublin for one night post wedding weekend in Castlebar. Met up with my cousin who took us here. We had drinks upstairs in the Stags Head pub before heading down stairs to the basement area for the comedy show. It's small so doesn't hold that many, so would advise to get there early enough to get seats. Doors open... More
