As one of the world’s largest chains of stand-up comedy clubs, Yuk Yuks Ottawa cripples audiences with side-splitting laughter cramps at giggle factories across the country. For the first time in the 27-year history of the downtown Ottawa locale, the club eschews the Queen’s English for “Des Rires en Français,” three nights of world-class comedy performed in French. A trio of popular francophiles piles on laugher without subtitles, including Gab Roy, who sports a hefty following in Quebec and more YouTube subscribers than a kitten eating pudding. Sébastien Bourgault dabbles in absurdism, and actor and comedian Derek Seguin tickles the funny bone with observational humour.
Like Oxford’s astrology department, the illustrious Yuk Yuk’s cabaret has an impressive alumni list, including Jim Carrey, Norm Macdonald, and Howie Mandel. During the 90-minute performances, guests can fuel their chuckle engines with a drink from the full bar or nourish their overburdened bellies with an invigorating snack. Yuk Yuk’s supports its community with a weekly fundraising program that helps support charities, nonprofit organizations, sports teams, and whoopee-cushion daycares.
Pour la première fois en 27 ans d’histoire, Yuk Yuks Ottawa offre des spectacles d’humour entièrement en français.
