Yuk Yuk’s celebrates opening weekend in Abbotsford

Comedy club features headliner Mike MacDonald on Dec. 11 and 12

Comedian Mike MacDonald is the headline act at Yuk Yuk's opening weekend in Abbotsford.

Canada’s national chain of comedy clubs, Yuk Yuk’s, opens in Abbotsford this weekend.

Headlining the weekend is Canadian stand-up comic and actor Mike MacDonald. He will be accompanied each night by MC and funny man Greg Kettner, as well as two opening acts – Ryan Williams and Amber Harper Young on Friday, and Joey Commisso and Fatima Dhowre on Saturday.

Doors open at 6 p.m. each night, and the show starts at 8 p.m.

Richard Murphy of Division 4 Hospitality, the franchisee and managing group, said the opening of the comedy club seems to be highly anticipated.

“If the love we’re feeling through social media and the pre-bookings we’ve had already is any indication of what’s to come, Yuk Yuk’s Abbotsford is the place to be,” he said.

The new Yuk Yuk’s is located at 2509 Pauline St. in downtown Abbotsford in a newly renovated space inside the Travelodge.

Stand-up comedy continues each week Thursday through Saturday, with an amateur night on Wednesdays.

Sunday through Tuesday will see variety nights, including karaoke, lip sync battles, game nights and more.

Tickets are available online at yukyuks.com. For large group bookings, email natalie@yukyuks.com.
