Detroit House of Comedy Announces Packed Summer of Shows- Grand Opening on June 24th -

Former City Theatre Space Reopens as a Completely Renovated, 300-Seat Comedy Club Presenting Top National and Local Comedic Talent

DETROIT, May 31, 2022 -- Once again there is something to smile about at 2301 Woodward Avenue, former home to the City Theatre inside Hockeytown Café in The District Detroit. Detroit House of Comedy will host its grand opening Friday, June 24th at 8pm featuring headliner Hans Kim who recently shared the stage with famed comedian and podcast host, Joe Rogan at Detroit's iconic Fox Theatre. Tickets to all upcoming performances at Detroit House of Comedy go on sale to the public on Monday, June 6 at 10:00AM EST. For tickets and more information please visit

Detroit's new home for live comedy is the second joint venture between Boston-based comedy producer John Tobin, who operates numerous venues including Laugh Boston, and stand-up comedian-turned promoter/producer Rick Bronson, who manages all other venues within the House of Comedy family across the U.S. and Canada. Detroit House of Comedy will host stand-up, improv, and podcasts from established local, regional, and national headliners, as well as up-and-comers with a focus on supporting comedians from Detroit and throughout greater Michigan.

Modeled after Laugh Boston, Detroit House of Comedy features a cabaret set up, but with an emphasis on improving sight lines to the stage from every seat in the room. Comedy fans will still enjoy the intimacy of a 300-seat club complete with tables and servers. However, departing from the typical level-flooring throughout the room, seats are dispersed across 6 different levels, cascading downward towards the stage in an amphitheater-like design that should not disappoint.
