Visited mid-week for a comedy show. The show was great! It started on time and filled up quickly. Our server was prompt and attentive. High quality performers and very funny! We ordered poutine to share. It was really tasty! Overall, a great experience!

I attended Yuk Yuks 7:00 pm show on Saturday evening, there was almost a full house, I was not disappointed with the show. A bit risqué to say the least, however I fully understood what to expect but wasn't sure how much until the emcee started. The comics were hilarious and were able to utilize audience participants to their advantage.... More

Came for a special show and the main act was very funny, the other comedians not as much. Limited choice of beer. Small space in basement, we were seated but with no table.

Worst comedy ever. The main headliner was so drunk he told no jokes other than say he was too drunk and looking for his menopausal wife. If you like bullying and racism you'll like the rest of the show... Also i booed for the first time in my life so i guess yuk yuk gave me a new experience

Great little spot for an evening out with the spouse or friends. Located right down town Ottawa with plenty of other things to do near by before or after the show. The prices are great and the entry fee differs from day to day and they even offer special student pricing on particular days. They have a nice menu and... More

We went there to see Mike Ward and the show was very good! We had a blast. The staff is fun and the price for drinks is average for a bar in Ottawa. I will definitely go back!

We were there for "comedy competition" - in other words, comedians starting out, so this night was cheap, real cheap because the cocktail waitress ignored us (we really weren't thirsty anyway). We had some good laughs.

I haven't been to Yuk Yuks for far too long and my family bough tickets to see Mike MacDonald as a Father's Day outing (the evening before...). Had a great time....their new digs on Elgin are a little spartan but you're not there for the decor.
