Drink, dine, and laugh with the best in live stand-up comedy at the world-famous comedy clubs known as Rick Bronson’s House of Comedy and The Comic Strip! The creation of award-winning comedian, magician, and writer Rick Bronson, his renowned venues have played host to top tier performers and excited audiences across North America since their inception. Featuring consistently packed lineups of comedians, a full dinner menu offering appetizers, entrees, and desserts, not to mention tasty craft cocktails and so much more, Rick Bronson’s comedy clubs are your go-to for pure stand-up hilarity.
With three different locations across the U.S. and Canada, Rick Bronson’s comedy enterprise brings glee and hilarity to all who walk through its doors. The Comic Strip in the West Edmonton Mall started it all, with top touring acts frequently showcased and fresh emerging comedic talents just waiting to be discovered. Next came Bloomington, MN’s House of Comedy, hosted in the Mall of America, which continues the relentless pursuit of comedic excellence. Rick’s most recent expansion is Phoenix, AZ’s House of Comedy, which has quickly come to be known as one of the hottest comedy venues on the globe.
What really makes Rick Bronson’s comedy clubs so amazing comes down to their consistently packed performance schedules. If you find yourself in the West Edmonton Mall this May, check out a special presentation from Bobby Lee, who’s best known for his work on the hit TV show MadTV, along with his appearances in the Harold & Kumar films and Pineapple Express. Get ready to laugh out loud in both Bloomington and Phoenix this summer with T.J. Miller, one of the most sought-after comedians in the world with countless movie and TV credits under his belt, not to mention a pair hour-long comedy specials: T.J. Miller: No Real Reason and T.J. Miller: Meticulously Ridiculous. Then, take a front row seat at any of the three locations for the annual Funniest Person with a Day Job Contest, where normal people from the everyday workforce try out their comedic skills on a willing audience, all in the name of the $1,000 grand prize. The best part? These and so many other amazing shows are coming to every one of Rick Bronson’s comedy club locations this year, so you can find yourself in stitches no matter where you are!
