Since their Toronto location opened in 1976, Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Club has been a collective launching pad for such comedy heavyweights as Jim Carrey, Rick Moranis, and Russell Peters. All of Yuk Yuk’s laugh-establishments invite seasoned jokesters and up-and-coming comedians to their stages every weekend for up to three days of high hilarity and three nights of cozy lodging atop their cocktail tables. Notable upcoming acts include Canadian Comedy Award winner Gilson Lubin (Ajax, May 17–19; and Toronto, May 23–26), whose knack for striking funny bones culminates in hysterical routines that sometimes discuss his plentiful opinions about the Tim Horton’s slogan. Having made his television rounds on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and CTV’s Comedy Now!, Chuck Byrn (Mississauga, May 3–5; and Ajax, May 10–12) looks ignite audiences in explosive laughter with a distinctively Canadian act that may get racy but rarely gets crude. Many Yuk Yuk’s locations offer drinks, dinner, or bar fare during the show, but those interested in dining should contact their club of choice to find out about reservations.
