We were there for "comedy competition" - in other words, comedians starting out, so this night was cheap, real cheap because the cocktail waitress ignored us (we really weren't thirsty anyway). We had some good laughs.

I haven't been to Yuk Yuks for far too long and my family bough tickets to see Mike MacDonald as a Father's Day outing (the evening before...). Had a great time....their new digs on Elgin are a little spartan but you're not there for the decor.

This is not the nicest place but depending who the comedians are, it makes for an entertaining evening. I would recommend to research the comedians first. All in all, a great evening.

We went here as a birthday party and had a great time. Very nice layout friendly door staff and the birthday girl got free admission. Although the drink were a bit pricey the overall experience was very good.

As part of a birthday celebration, eight of us reserved for the 2nd show on Saturday night - great little venue, with a diverse set of comedians and a host who delivers a ton of laughs. A nice surprise was a short but decent selection of wine - was not expecting this at a comedy club! Oh - and free... More

Someone organized a group of us to go Sunday night in a show featuring Nick Beaton and Patrick Haye. I had been to the Yuk Yuk's on Preston St many moons ago organized by someone else and also been to just for laugh in Montreal a couple of times. The club is in the basement going down a flight of...

We got there early, so we bought our tickets, reserved our seats and then went down the street to local coffee shop to kill some time before the show. The place wasn't packed but full nonetheless. The food was your typical bar food. They had a nice selection of beer and wine. The comedy was very good. We saw four... More

Was at their New Year's Eve party at Dows Lake Pavilion. Very nice atmosphere. The comedians were mostly entertaining. We paid $40 for a show ticket which I think was worth it. Glad we didn't spend the $104 for dinner/show however..... Definitely not worth that much! Will not go back next year though, due to the service. With all the... More
