It’s been ages since Rick, and I had a no-kid event, but we recently scored complimentary tickets to see a live comedy show at Yuk Yuk’s Ottawa Comedy Club. Of course, this was a night to get glammed up and let loose. Ok, we put on our best pair of jeans!! If you didn’t know, they offer unique ticket pricing for an exclusive Friday Date Night.
Now, before I get carried away, let me start by telling you that the comedy scene in the Ottawa area is not something that I’m very familiarized with as I’ve only seen maybe two live shows — I know, I’ve been missing out right?
Let me tell you about Ottawa’s Premiere hot spot, Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Club — it’s a major staple in this City’s comedy scene.Yuk Yuk’s is located in the heart of the downtown core, accessible by car or public transportation.
They offer a variety of comedians, with shows six nights a week. They have something for everyone, birthday parties, corporate events and even date night. For showtimes and pricing, please click here.
Our Date Night
We arrived at Yuk Yuk’s a little early and were greeted by the hostess, she was super friendly and recommended that we grab a drink or two at the bar upstairs. So we did just that.
Showtime was approaching, so we made our way back downstairs and were guided to our seats for the night. We had an incredible view of the stage, right in the second row and waited for the show to commence. I saw the server making her rounds and making sure each guest had what they needed. I would recommend an additional server to speed up the service, as there were times that the server didn’t make her way over to us or we waited a while for our drinks.
As with any night out, there is always that one guy who had one too many drinks, talks too much, gets real loud and tries to cause a scene. I have to admit that the staff remained calm and handled this situation exceptionally well. The entire team of staff supported one another throughout the entire show. It was really great to see a team supporting each other and proud of their venue.
But the show must go on.
The show consisted of a handful of entertaining comedians who kept us on our toes and laughing the night away. The atmosphere at Yuk Yuk’s provides a night full of fun and laughter! This comedy date night is the perfect way to let loose and have some fun!
Meet the Comedians
You’ve probably heard that laughter is the best medicine. It’s true. We had such a great time tonight, and can’t wait to come back — maybe bring a couple of our friends and make a real night of it.
