HAPPY BIRTHDAY
HAPENNY LAUGHS!

There's something about Improv – The Hotbed of Irish Comedy Performance

What have Neil Delamere, Eleanor Tiernan, Tony Ferns and Keith Farnan all got in common?

They were all in the Hapenny Laughs Improv Troupe!

What makes improv so infectious? Perhaps it’s including every audience suggestion, the brilliant atmosphere, or the magical on the spot creativity — but great improv is always wonderful to witness. This is probably what had a lot to do with launching so many Irish stand ups, skilled in the art of welcoming an audiences ideas, with fast thinking reaction and spontaneous creativity.

The Hapenny Laughs Improv Comedy Troupe have been gigging for 19 years! You can go and see them strutting their spontaneous improv stylings every month on the last Thursday in the Hapenny Bridge Inn. But this month is their 19th Birthday!

Years ago Mr Boombastic by Shaggy was no.1 and a new group of Improvers took to the stage for the first time. A few went to a FÁS course in comedy! They went to the first year of the Cat Laughs Festival in 1995. They squeezed into a workshop with Chicago based Improvers ‘Second City’, famous for Steve Carell and Bill Murray among many others. After that, the rest is history!

Brian McMahon, Tony Ferns, Colman Higgins (the only one with the internet at that time) and Grainne McEntee took to the stage in the Hapenny Bridge Inn soon joined by Richard Maloney, with Coolio’s Gangsta’s Paradise ringing in their ears in 1995, during August’s biggest heat wave, their first show was a scorcher! At that time there was one improv show, the Dublin Comedy Improv, now there was two… the 2nd longest running live Improv show in Ireland.

In 1996 The Hapenny Laughs did the only fringe show to the Cat Laughs Festival in 1996, now they’re a regular fringe feature ever since. Soon Colm O'Grady and Claire McKenna joined and they brought their own unique style. Trained circus performers, they held the stage with a powerful presence of physicality and acting skills that blended wonderfully with crowd suggestions and the already established talents of Colman, Brian, Richard, Grainne, and Tony. With the increasing demands of stand-up, they asked the doorman to step up in Brian’s place, that was Ciaran McMahon, Brian’s brother, hilarious, but twice as good looking (he wrote this).

  INTERNATIONAL ACTS
@THE AXE

Celebrated international stand-up comics who have appeared at the Battle of the Axe have included one of Australia's most favoured acts that is Jimeoin.

Outstanding Canadian TV presenter and Stand-up comedian Rick Bronson gave one of the best ever performances at the Battle of the Axe. He dropped in while filming his TV programme in Dublin. The Tourist, a television series he created, hosted and co-wrote, is now a hit in 22 countries, and his recent national comedy special, Comedy Now Presents Rick Bronson, was among the highest rated in Canadian history.

A popular visitor, personal friend and recipient of the Battle of the Axe is Dr Kevin Fitzgerald the star of Animal Planet's "Emergency Vets". He is also well know for his Comic talents and Kevin has had the privilege of opening in concert for such legendary performers as Diana Ross and Bob Hope. Kevin has also worked in concert as a headline comedian or as the opening act for bands like The Neville Brothers, Emmy Lou Harris, The Corrs and The Temptations. He has appeared at such prestigious venues as The Grand 'Ol Oprey and The House of Blues. You may also have seen him on NBC's Nightly News with Tom Brokaw, The Maury Povich Show, A&E's Comedy on the Road, TNN's Crooke and Chase or as host of HBO's "Women of the Night." We hope top see him back at the Axe in the near future.

When no one else could get a laugh we threw Jimmy Shubert in at the deep end at the Axe and he obliged. It was Jimmy's scene-stealing performance as the lollipop-sucking strip club bouncer in Columbia Pictures' GO, directed by Doug Liman (SWINGERS), that jumpstarted his film career. Jimmy earned parts on numerous television shows including the WB series ANGEL, and as Roger Daltry's road manager in Showtime's RUDE AWAKENINGS. So why did we leave him hanging around the staircase for two hours before we put him on stage we will never know!!


Over 1000 performers have graced its stage since its conception nearly 8 Years ago. Not a lot of people know that the Ha’ Penny Bridge Inn has also housed such noted acts as Dermot Morgan (RIP) (Father Ted), Tommy Tiernan, Jason Byrne, Alan Davis (Cracker), Alex Lyons (BBC produced writer), Pat McDonald (Don’t Feed the Gondolas), The Nualas, Anne Lillis, Anne Gildea, Tara Flynn, Barry Murphy (Aprés Match) and Deirdre O’Kane. The bar was a popular frequenting place for Thin Lizzy in their early days and the pub was once owned by the great Irish tenor Josef Locke.

The present battleoftheaxe.com continues to introduce fresh new acts to the entertainment world.

Progressive acts to watch out for include singer/songwriters Damien Davis, James Cramer, Chris Morrin and Peter Doran. Comedians making strong waves are John Colleary, Bernard O’Shea, Tom Blanchfield and MC/Comedian Andrew Stanley is mixing it with the best at the moment.

WORKSHOPS

ADVANCED LEVEL IMPROVISATION - CHICAGO LONG FORMS


A NEW SIX-PART WORKSHOP & FINALE LIVE SHOW


WITH JOHN DAWSON

Long-form improv is the most important group work since they built the pyramids. - Bill Murray

In this workshop, higher level improvisation techniques are delved into, drawing on methods used by North America’s famous Second City Theatre and Del Close’s iO (Improv Olympics).

Performers with past improv training and performance experience will work through much more challenging exercises and games to further develop and fine-tune intuitive, razor-sharp improv skills. These abilities are then used in exploring various long-form improv styles.

Each week the class starts with instruction in various characterization techniques, working with environments, status/hierarchy, and narrative structure.

The 2nd half is instruction in story-telling long-forms i.e. ‘Goon River’, and scenic/episodic long-forms: the ‘Armando’ (creator: Armando Diaz) and the ‘Harold’ (creator: Del Close). John will also instruct his own version that combines aspects of both forms.

It will end with a live long-form performance in a Dublin venue.

WHEN: 6 classes on Mondays. Starts Monday, September 22nd and runs to and including Monday October 27th

CLASS TIMES:
7:15PM to 10:15PM

WHERE:
4 Manor Street, Dublin 7 (Stoneybatter area)

COST:
€185.00
(reduced fee for full time drama students and groups of 3 or more -  170.00 per person) total (To enroll an €85 non-refundable deposit is required by Friday, September 5th)

BIO: John Dawson has been involved in improv for over 25 years. He studied the 'Harold' with its creator, improv guru Del Close, while training inimprov at N. America’s famous Second City Theatre, the forerunner and principal casting pool for ‘Saturday Night Live’. John went on to co-create a Toronto-based Harold troupe. He has been teaching master-classes and workshops in improv, characterization, scene study, audition technique and on-camera acting for over 19 years in three countries. He has taught hundreds of actors and comics including members of The Princes of Lagos, The Banker's Craic Pack, Cork's Snatch Comedy troupe, Limerick's Choke Comedy and many more in his own Dublin workshop and at Dublin’s Gaiety School of Acting, The Actors Centre in London, The Galway Film Centre, and Toronto’s Equity Showcase Theatre. He taught film acting for over 6 years at Trinity College’s Samuel Beckett Centre. John is a produced playwright and screenwriter. His own Dublin-basedimprov troupe MONDO BIZARRO performed 5 sold-out shows at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

TESTIMONIALS:
"I have studied improv in North America and Europe, and John Dawson is by far the most energetic and enthusiastic teacher with whom I have ever had the pleasure of studying. His exercises pinpoint weaknesses that we improvers may have never known how to tackle. He knows exactly how to loosen up the performers. It's no wonder his name became famous in the "underground" improv scene in Dublin, he's the best."
NATALIE PLAZA, performer w/ Cherib Improv, NYC and training w/ the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, NYC

"We at Trinity saw the benefit of John's work as did all who he taught. He's a great teacher who engages with students in a fantastic and practical way."
ANDY CROOK, former course co-ordinator - Professional Actor Training Programme, Trinity College, Dublin

“Performers who’ve trained with John have a definite edge because they can adapt to handle the toughest audiences.”
TONY FERNS, producer, ‘Battle of the Axe’ Comedy Club, Dublin

 A NEW, SIX-PART, CREATIVE, CRAICIN’
IMROVISATION WORKSHOP
WITH JOHN DAWSON

Improvisation develops creativity, confidence, collaboration skills,
and spontaneity. In addition to being a mode of live comedy, it can be used as a tool to create characters, develop original dramatic, and/or comedic material and as part of a rehearsal process to explore written text. In this six-part beginner/intermediate level workshop, participants rediscover their natural ability to 'play' while exploring collaborative games, exercises, and techniques used by North America’s Second City Theatre (the forerunner and principal casting pool of 'Saturday Night Live') and 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?'.

The elements of narrative such as plot, theme, conflict and resolution are emphasized and explored so that storytelling skills are developed. This is perfect for both the trained performer who wants to stretch and expand their abilities as well as for the curious who want to explore new creative experiences.

The workshop concludes with a live performance at the weekly Battle of the Axe Comedy event at the Ha'Penny Bridge Tavern, Temple Bar, Dublin in late February.

WHEN: 6 classes starting Wednesday Sept. 24th to and incuding Wednesday Oct. 29th

TIMES:
7:15PM to 10:15PM

WHERE:
4 Manor Street, Dublin 7 (Stoneybatter area)

COST:
€175.00 total (reduced fee for full time students and for groups of 3 or more €160.00 per person)

An €85.00 non-refundable deposit is required due no later than Friday, September 5th
