Pro-Amateur Standup Comedy Night $5

  • Mar 13, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We'll be mixing and mingling from 7-8. PLEASE BRING A PEN if you want to participate in the icebreaker. Thanks!

Let's meet up and go see some new comedians. Will they be good? We don't know! They're brand new! But we'll get to meet up and laugh a lot, either with each other or at the comedians. Either way, we'll be having a great time.

Tickets and seats are first-come, first-served. Doors open at 7pm. If you arrive at 7, you should have a good chance at getting tickets. If you don't, then you risk being turned away if the show is sold out. People who were more than 15 minutes late last time had a hard time finding seats with the group so please be on time at 7pm.

Show time is 8pm and ends at 10. No plans for drinks or anything after, since it's a weeknight. Contact me if you have some ideas for after the event.

**Please note the ice breaker is an OPTIONAL tool. Some people need an excuse or some ideas to start a conversation and mingle about the room. If you don't, that's great. Use the ice breaker if it helps or put it aside if it doesn't. I don't expect anyone to do anything they aren't enjoying. Thanks!**.

    I will be honest here. I left after the 3rd stand-up because I found the comedians rather dull and I couldn't imagine sitting through more of it. I was lured by the "amateur-pro" title, but it was fully an amateur night. Looks like others enjoyed themselves. This was my first outing with this group. The people seemed nice.

      yes, those were my favs, too. I also liked the English teacher.

      Ya, I had a feeling it would get better towards the end. The first three left me wondering what I had at home that would be more entertaining. Glad to read you enjoyed yourselves.

    Marie,

    Still doing my "darnest" to make it in, sadly I won't be able to make it on time. A last minute work drive to Abbostford messed up all my schedule, and rain -traffic are factors. Hope I can get there soon enough.

    The manager of Yuk Yuk's wants everyone to know how important it is to show up at 7. The show starts at 8 but with 80 people on the list (plus about 20 extra friends tagging along) it is important to show up early to make sure you get in and get a table with the group. See you all Wednesday!

      Hi Marie, I'd be concerned about being a heterosexual single on their turf. It might not be an issue any more. Have you checked with the management for their feedback?

    do most people come to these events on their own?

    February 25, 2013

    • Marie B

      yes, most come alone and then we sit as a group. You will know people by the end of the night :)

      People think I arrive alone, but if you look closely you'll notice I'm accompanied by Tommy Myrtle, my furry key chain turtle ~B0)

    Last night was fun, yet squirm worthy for the poor newbie comedians. Looking forward to this one now!

      there was only one guy I found really hard to watch. I thought everyone else was at least cute, if not overly talented :)
