What is the dress code?

What is the best way to purchase group tickets?

Since our establishment is first come, first served, it is often best to buy your tickets in advance so we can do our best to sit everyone together. The best way to do this (if everyone is paying separately) is to set up a group name by calling the box office. Then have each group member call in to purchase their tickets under that group name. By keeping your tickets in a "group", it allows us reserve a table for your group in advance.

What is the age reguirement within the club?

We generally consider our shows to be in the range of an "R" rated movie. That simply means that anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, and carry valid identification. However, all patrons must be at least 16 years of age for the early shows, this includes children and infants. Our late shows are 18+ only due to liquor license requirements.

Think you are funny? No need to audition. Contact our talent coordinator Mike Brody, brody@houseofcomedy.net  Invite all your friends!  There is a month waiting list.

How do I know if I'll like the act?

Comics change their act all the time. You are seeing a live show--often one that might play a bit off audience participation and/or general interaction. We feel that the best way of gauging whether or not the comic is an act you'll like is to get a general feel for their style by using resources such as YouTube to find clips of past performances. If an act is known to be a bit more "edgy" than is typical, we may choose to put a content warning disclaimer on the website.

Do you serve food?

Yes. Unless your teeth are giving you specific issues, you can eat. The showroom doors open anywhere from 30-90 minutes before the show (depending on day & time) and you can eat right in the showroom, or come even earlier and eat in our Lounge

Yes. If you have ANY special needs including issues involving mobility, vision, hearing, etc., please let us know in advance and we'll make the accomodations necessary to make your visit a success!

Do you have coat check?

Absolutely, and free of charge! We know that here in Minnesota, the weather can be quite a bitch, so we encourage you to be prepared! We can check your coat as early at 11am, so if you're coming to the mall to do some shopping and will be joining us for a show that evening, feel free to check your coat early so you don't have to lug it thru the mall!

Do you have a Two-Drink Minimum?

We do not have a drink minimum, but we do have a maximum. 

Do you ever have any discounts on tickets?

Yes! We will often include special, exclusive offers to our Facebook friends and Twitter followers. We also have discounts for large groups, military, bachelor(ette) parties and members of our birthday club. Mall of America employees get in FREE Tuesday and Wednesday nights with a valid MOA Employee Badge or a CURRENT paystub. Sunday night is Hospitality Night!

Do you do bachelor(ette) parties?

The bride/groom and the maid of honor/best man receive a complimentary ticket into the show. Everyone else in the bachelor(ette) party receive 15% off the regular ticket price. We also offer a dinner/show package nightly. We can easily set up a group reservation and everyone attending the party can call in and purchase his/her own ticket.
