House of Comedy Opening at Mall of America

Wednesday night, I was fortunate to have been in attendance at the grand opening of the House of Comedy at the Mall of America. This was all possible thanks to winning passes on twitter from Mall of America’s twitter account. Again, I am very lucky when I least expect or ask for it; trust me, I’m not complaining.

The House of Comedy features a nice, trendy looking bar that greets you upon your arrival. It helps set the mood with its intimate feel and clean, classy look. My group did not eat there, but the picture of the burger from the R. Burger bar looked delicious; I will hold off on the typical chinese/thai mall food next time.

Walking into the comedy club, I was surprised at how large it was. I must note that this was my first comedy club experience, so I had the opportunity to go into this experience as a pure newbie to the scene. Despite the largeness to the club, it still had an intimate feel; or that could have been due to being very close to the stage.

The headliner was Jeff Capri, who has been on Last Comic Standing, Comics Unleashed, and Ed McMahon’s Next Big Star (of which I never had heard of). Though I’ve never heard of him, he lived up to being at headliner status. From talking about a shadow on his leg, to his love for Michael Jackson, to discussing race; he hit many funny spots and had the audience laughing at just about everything. I think they call that ‘in the zone’.

The House of Comedy has done a very good job of being prepared for opening and starting off strong. They are on twitter (though they could use some help there), they have a facebook fan page, their website looks pretty solid, and they have a lineup already scheduled including Greg Giraldo and Norm MacDonald which should attract a good following early on in this businesses life.

I will go back to the House of Comedy. Good atmosphere, good service, good laughs, and on some nights, an open mic opportunity. Yes, I will someday do an open mic night to try my hand at comedy. I’ll definitely give everyone a heads up when that happens; I promise it will be at the House of Comedy.
