Comedy in the Hammer: Patrick Coppolino

Comedy Hamilton Patrick Coppolino


Hello! Welcome back to Comedy in the Hammer! Every week we sit down with a local comedian and let you know what shows are happening in the city this week!


We spoke with Hamilton favourite Patrick Coppolino. Patrick runs the amateur night at Yuk Yuks and is a great show to do so reach out to Patrick if you’d like to sign up. Patrick will be performing at our fundraiser for the MS Society “Laughing Under The Influence” this Saturday night at Mills Hardware.

MS: How long has the show been going for?


PC: Amateur Night has been going for as long as there’s been a Yuk Yuk’s, I’d imagine, but I’ve been the regular MC & producer for over 5 years now.


MS: Where is the show/when does it start/is there any cost?


PC: The show is at Hamilton Yuk Yuk’s at 9PM on Wednesday’s for just $5 admission.


MS: How often does the show happen?


PC: Every Wednesday night.


MS: How long have you been doing stand up for?


PC: I’ve been doing standup for over 7 years now.


MS: What makes the show different than others?


PC: I think what makes Amateur Night different is that each week features amateurs, professionals and first timers all on one bill, which is a great mix for a good comedy crowd.


MS: What’s your favourite part of running the show?


PC: I enjoy having a weekly platform to try out new material and work on my crowd work skills. I also enjoy being able to give new comics a stage to start out on, while also being able to book some more experienced comics who I love sharing the stage with.


MS: Do you have any stories of something unexpected that’s happened at a show?


PC: There are too many to count… But we always have our Hamilton Comedy Mascot, Mr. Dingalingadingdong (a large dildo) onstage, so needless to say, that has sparked some pretty unexpected and hilarious moments.


MS: Are there any lineups coming up you’re excited about?


PC: I’m excited about every lineup. I always try to book what I think will be an equally entertaining show for the audience as it will be productive for the comics performing.
