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 Westin Nova Scotian. For $16, you get two general-admission tickets to any regular show between May 1 and September 3 (up to a $32 value). Performances take place on Thursdays at 8 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and 10 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 Halifax stage makes way for an oncoming stampede of funny people, including hair stylist-cum-comedienne Shannon Laverty (May 10–12), whose provocative onstage persona earned her the opportunity to tour South Africa behind her hilarious routines, which sometimes discuss the ineffectiveness of misguided pickup lines. Bryan Hatt (May 17–19) catches audiences off guard with his uncanny ability to spontaneously riff as he tells rib-tickling tales of his struggles with weight loss. Though this Groupon is not valid for food, those wishing to eat may arrange dinner and a show ahead of time.
