Cornwall Ontario – Valentine’s Day is approaching and a comedy show could be the perfect date night. Yuk Yuks Launching Pad comes to Boston Pizza, in Cornwall Ontario, on Sunday, February 11th. The show is booked by Yuk Yuks co-founder and Ottawa General Manager Howard Wagman who has been a booking shows for over 30 years. Yuk Yuks has had many successful alumni over the decades including superstars like Russell Peters, Norm MacDonald, Jeremy Hotz and Tom Green to name a few.
“A Yuk Yuk’s Launching Pad show is a collection of the brightest newcomers on the verge of breaking out on the hot Ottawa comedy scene,” says Wagman. “See them now at this low price,” he adds.
Yuk Yuks has been a familiar brand in Cornwall since the days of Freddy’s where comics had audiences in stitches week after week and now this trend will continue at Boston Pizza with some of the best up and coming talents that grace the Ottawa Club.
“Our New Talent Showcase is one of the finest in the country or anywhere. Each comic must first watch a New Talent Night to see the level of what they are getting into. They must sign up a month ahead as spots are at a premium. Each act is watched not ignored and given guidance. It’s a marathon not a sprint,” Wagman stated.
The show includes local talent Mark Vincent, retired NFL player Mark Hatfield, former Yuk Yuks summer Competition winner Greg Schroeder, and Tim Riel who performed at Cracking up the Capital!
“I’m happy to be performing again in my hometown, and at the Yuk Yuks Launching Pad. It’s going to be a funny night. This is a great lineup of talent. It’s going to be the perfect Valentines date,” Mark Vincent concluded.
Tickets are on sale now at Boston Pizza for $15, and the show February 11th starts at 5pm. Cornwall’s Boston Pizza is located at 1234 Brookdale Ave.
