Even though this Ottawa branch of the nationwide comedy chain can seat 150 people at cabaret-style tables, it doesn’t feel like a big barn, due to the low ceilings and cool basement vibe. Talent ranges from local amateurs to international headliners. Snacks and drinks are available during all shows, which run Wednesday through Sunday. Book a pre-show dinner at Hooley’s restaurant upstairs from Thursday through Sunday and get an added perk: preferred seating at the show. Otherwise, seating is first come, first served. Shows change weekly and run just under two hours, and there are two shows on Saturdays. Minimum age is 16; anyone 16 to 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Yuk Yuk’s also runs smaller shows at the Prescott tavern in Little Italy on Fridays and Saturdays, with individual tickets and dinner-show packages available.
