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 Westin Nova Scotian. For $16, you get two general-admission tickets to any regular show between January 1 and April 30 (up to a $32 value). Performances take place on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 8:30 p.m., and on Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. 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. Yuk Yuk’s Halifax stage makes way for an oncoming stampede of funny people, who perform uncensored sets for ages 19 and older four nights a week. Since shows are restricted to mature audiences, comedians can let four-letter words fly and demonstrate how to balance chequebooks for uproarious applause. Though this Groupon is not valid for food, those wishing to eat may arrange dinner and a show ahead of time.
