Not Many People Know About The Great American Comedy Festival In Nebraska

As most Nebraskans know, several comedy icons are associated with the Cornhusker State, including Dick Cavett and the late Johnny Carson. Carson was born in Iowa but spent his formative years in Norfolk, a town that honors his influence to this day. The annual Great American Comedy Festival is the ultimate tribute, but not many people know that it happens right here in Nebraska.
