Without laughter, knock-knocks would only reveal door-to-door salesmen and the Tickle Monster would have to change his name to the “Socially Awkward Monster.” Revel in uninhibited laughs with this GrouponLive deal to see a comedy show at Yuk Yuk's at the Elbow River Casino. For $19, you get two general-admission tickets to any regular comedy show between January 1 and April 30 (up to a $38 value). Check the club's schedule for upcoming performers.
Since their Toronto location opened in 1976, Yuk Yuk's has been a collective launching pad for such comedy heavyweights as Jim Carrey, Rick Moranis, and Russell Peters. Keeping their crowds roaring with a steady stream of continentally touring comics, the club was tapped last year as the area's Best Place for Comedy by Fast Forward Weekly. On Thursday through Saturday evenings, Yuk Yuk’s Calgary stage makes way for a stampede of funny people spearheaded by stand-up veterans and up-and-comers in 90-minute showcases of comedic originality. All shows are uncensored and recommended for audiences 18 years of age and older, although 16–18 year olds may attend if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
