Located in the Elbow River Casino, Calgary’s Yuk Yuks is consistently voted one of the top places for stand-up comedy across Alberta as well as winning the Best Place for Comedy award yet again. For more than 35 years, this joint has been the perfect melting pot of comedy: a place for amateur comedians to do trial runs while also showcasing some of Calgary’s best talent. Any comedian coming through Calgary will hit up Yuk Yuks to either perform or enjoy the local comedy scene on any given Thursday, Friday or Saturday evening.

Every Wednesday is a pro amateur open mic comedy show at Yuk Yuks, so whether you’re a professional, you want to give it a go or you just want to see a good show, this is a great place to be. Visit Yuk Yuks in the coming months to see well-known comics such as The Goldbergs’ Bryan Callen, the always affable Kevin Stobo, podcaster Ari Shaffir, headlining comedian Darryl Lenox and host of NBC’s American Ninja Warrior Matt Iseman. For more information on how to get tickets to a laughing good time, visit Yuk Yuks official website.
