“Laughter is the best medicine, and I think we all could use a big dose of laughter during times like these. We are excited to get back to connecting with people in providing a comedy oasis,” Yuk Yuks founder Mark Breslin said.

Tickets must be purchased in advance while patrons will also have the ability to purchase food and drink from the drive-thru snack station when they pay for admission.
