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 Comedy Club at the Elbow River Casino. For $19, you get two general-admission tickets to any regular comedy show between May 1 and September 3 (up to a $38 value). Performances take place Thursdays at 8 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.
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. Yuk Yuk’s Calgary stage makes way for a stampede of funny people spearheaded by stand-up veterans and up-and-comers including frequent "Punk'd" prankster Rob Pue, who unleashes raucous sound effects on May 3–5. On May 17–19, pop-culture addict Tony Binns pays homage to Star Wars, the Muppets, or both at the same time if the audience is lucky. 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.
