Yuk Yuk’s is Canada’s original home of stand-up comedy. Comic Mark Breslin founded the place in 1976, inspired by New York’s Catch a Rising Star and Los Angeles’s Comedy Store. Famous alumni include Jim Carrey, Howie Mandel, and Norm MacDonald. Jerry Seinfeld, Robin Williams, Sandra Bernhard, and Bill Hicks have all headlined here. Tuesday is amateur night and is, correspondingly, cheap.
