If laughter is the best medicine, then you can get the cure from Yuk Yuk’s, the International Standup Comedy Club chain. In Ottawa, you will find Yuk Yuk’s on Elgin Street, right in the downtown core.

YUK YUK’S Ottawa on Elgin

292 Elgin Street

The downtown location on Elgin Street seats up to 150 people in a casual, cabaret style ambience. Up to 50 sit down dinners with regular menu of 4 entrees, or 100 buffet-style dinners. They recommend that you make reservations. Seating is on a first come, first served basis–reservations only provide admission.

For a complete list of their line-up of talent, see their website.

It is probably a good idea to arrive early so you have your pick of seats. I would not want to end up in the front row… otherwise, you might end up inadvertently providing material for their jokes!

If on the other hand, you love the spotlight, by all means, plant yourself front-row-centre.

Feeling really bold?? Try your hand at standup on Amateur night! Or book their club for your birthday party or private function.
