“I’d always liked the [Fort Myers] area,” says Belushi. “Then Chris told me the best part: The restaurant was opening in what used to be one of the biggest Irish pubs he’d ever seen. Two floors!” Soon after, Belushi’s Comedy Club, Fort Myers, opened its doors on the second floor above the Tilted Kilt restaurant.
Belushi is also a singer and musician with a demanding ear for superior live sound. His group The Sacred Hearts is the official house band for the House of Blues chain. Not surprisingly, as Belushi’s Comedy Club took shape as a venue where both comedy and live music would be performed, Belushi’s musical heritage influenced his demand that the club have the highest quality audio system anywhere – one versatile enough to handle live comedy, as well as musical performances.
