You want to laugh? Well, there is a new Phoenix spot to do just that. Rick Bronson’s House of Comedy opens on High Street Sept. 4. Comedian T.J. Miller, who currently stars in HBO’s "Silicon Valley" and co-stars in "Transformers 4" will be bringing the funny opening weekend.
The House of Comedy is scheduled to showcase some of the tour’s top acts, like Harland Williams and Brent Morin.
“We will be showcasing the biggest, best and brightest stars in stand-up comedy whose credits include appearances on Fallon, Letterman, Conan, Kimmel, Last Comic Standing, SNL, Mad TV, Comedy Central and other popular shows,” says Tammy MacPherson, CFO and House of Comedy booker.
Owner, comedian and former Travel Channel host Rick Bronson says, “We are thrilled to be opening on High Street, undoubtedly the North Valley’s next great entertainment, dining and party district. With tenants like Toby Keith’s - I Love This Bar & Grill, Blue Martini, Kona Grill - and many more soon to come, High Street reminds me of some of America’s coolest streets. It won’t be long before High Street rivals famed areas such as San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, South Beach’s Lincoln Road Mall and Austin’s 6th Street.”
The adjoining Heckler Lounge offers up unique cocktails and dining delights like the Canadian-inspired delicacy, poutine. It features waffle-cut fries covered in cheese curds and smothered in a hot beef gravy. The State Fare (a share platter featuring state fair cuisine) features mac n cheese bites, mini corn dogs, deep-fried cheese curds, corn on the cob, buffalo bites and mini donuts. The menu features a plethora of fabulous flatbreads, brilliant burgers, signature salads and absolutely appealing appetizers. www.houseofcomedy.net.
