Comedy Festival gets support from statewide entity

NORFOLK – A northeast Nebraska comedy event is getting a financial boost from the state.

Officials with the Norfolk-based Great American Comedy Festival announced Wednesday that they have received a grant of almost $7,000 from the Nebraska Arts Council.

Festival organizers say that money will help support the 12th annual edition of the festival, which runs this year June 13th through the 15th.

The annual festival is put on every year in honor of late-night TV legend Johnny Carson, who grew up in Norfolk.
