Family owned and operated as a Minnesota Small Business since 2007!

Did I mention our Bucket O’ Beer specials?


About the Club
The Joke Joint Comedy Club is proud to be a Minnesota family owned and operated small business.  We opened our first location in Bloomington on May 4, 2007, at the Ramada Mall of America Hotel in Bloomington.

In March, 2010, the Joke Joint opened out new room, closer to St. Paul, MN, 1/4 mile northeast of I-35E and Highway 13, at the Mississippi River, in the town of Lilydale.

With our historic Diamond Jim’s location, our unique and intimate show room, and a personal guarantee of your satisfaction, we hope to have you come back again and again.

Just south of St. Paul, off I-35E in Lilydale:
801 Sibley Memorial Highway (Highway 13)
St. Paul (Lilydale), MN  55118

From I-35E, exit 102, Highway 13, turn northeast (Towards St. Paul), the club is located about 1/4 mile up the road, in the River Bluffs Center, overlooking the Mississippi River, in the same location as the former Bluffs of Mendota and Diamond Jim’s Supper Club.

What’s the Difference?

Purchasing your tickets in advance guarantees your seat will be held at a show, even if you arrive late.  Also, the online purchase allows slightly streamlined seating before the show, and you don’t have to hassle with cash or credit cards before the show.

You do not need a credit card to make a reservation.
