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 London stage makes way for a stampede of funny people spearheaded by stand-up veterans and up-and-comers including Trinidad native Jean Paul, whose quips about his parents and their preferred choice of climate earned him appearances on the Comedy Network and CTV. A semi-finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, comedian Winston Spear lures unsuspecting chuckles with his absurd observations and goofy dances, and funnyman Derek Seguin charms audiences with his French-Canadian accent. Also on Yuk Yuk’s humour-seeking radar, Kristeen von Hagen and Laurie Elliott showcase the risqué ribaldry they honed together on the cross-Canada Girls Night Out tour. Yuk Yuk’s opens their full bar and dinner menu one hour before show time and continues serving until the curtain drops.
