If laughter is the best medicine then a healthy dose will be handed out when the Best of Yuk Yuk’s comedy tour arrives in Sidney on Sat., May 10.

Yuk Yuk’s has been a staple in the Canadian comedy scene since 1976. Starting with one underground club in Toronto by founder Mark Breslin, the now world famous troupe has clubs in more than ten cities across Canada.

The May 10 show at the Mary Winspear Centre’s Charlie White Theatre features The Best of Yuk Yuk’s including comedian Damonde Tschritter.

Tschritter is the first Canadian in 27 years to win the Seattle International Comedy Competition, the biggest in the US. Not only has he performed at every comedy festival in North America, his television specials have aired on CBC, CTV and HBO.

Sam Easton began his comedy career winning the Humber College Phil Hartman Award, presented to him by legend Dan Aykroyd. From there Easton’s success has allowed him to participate in many film and television roles.

Voted the funniest comedian in Vancouver and returning to the Mary Winspear Centre is Toby Hargrave.

Still a comedian at heart, Hargrave has recently appeared in over 10 film and television productions and has performed at countless festivals including Just for Laughs in Montreal.

Tickets for the show are available through the Mary Winspear box office by calling 250-656-0275 or visiting marywisnpear.ca.
