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 Yuk Yuk's at the Century Casino. For $19, you get two general-admission tickets to any regular show between January 1 and April 30 (up to a $38 value). Performances take place Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.
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 Edmonton stage makes way for a stampede of funny people led by stand-up veterans and up-and-comers alike. Shows are completely uncensored and geared toward crowds of adults or child sailors, though content ranges from the deliberately dirty to the genially offbeat. The schedule of upcoming acts is constantly evolving, so check the website to stay posted.
