Event Details

If laughter is the best medicine, then we surely have the cure!  Come out and join us for a special evening of fun, where you will ... be entertained by a talented group of very funny comedians ... laugh until it hurts ... and help fight cancer all at the same time! Yuk Yuk's Halifax is graciously sharing proceeds of the show with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.

You get to see: Ian Sirota, Steve Mackie and Ian Black.

You need to be: At least 19 years old and able to hold your bladder under extreme comedic pressure.

Doors open at 7pm.  Show starts at 8:30pm.


Ian Sirota: This two time Gemini nominee is a force to be reckoned with. Nominated for best comedy performance, this sharp-tongued comedian takes no prisoners. He can take a one-word answer and turn it into a fifteen-minute farce. He’s smart, funny and his improv skills are considered among the best. Ian’s stand-up ranges from: observational, to self-deprecating, to one-liners and always with the audience in mind. “People want to be part of the show and it’s my job to do that but never at anyone’s expense. It’s all in good fun and everyone leaves with a smile on his or her face."

Steve Mackie: A Halifax favorite that does comedy throughout the Maritimes has been going steady since 2006. A finalist on Second City’s Next Comedy Legend aired on CBC in 2007, filled his heart with disgust and scorn for the mainstream.

Ian Black: Originally from the west coast, Ian swam against the current and moved to Halifax, where his skewed bi-coastal perspective spills over into his comedy.  A favourite at clubs throughout the Maritimes, his brand of comedy was the foundation for the "sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll" name for the Island Comedy Fest's dirty show.  He likes to take aim at many of life's absurdities, but his favourite target, by far, is himself.
