You might have missed it, but ComFest added some new entertainment last year - stand-up comedy. The fest is recognizing the emergent comedy scene in Columbus again this year by inviting some of the best local stand-up acts to perform. Returning comedian Darrell Dawson, also our colleague here at the Dispatch Printing Company, said he hopes to see an entire tent dedicated to laughs in the near future. Twice as many performers will take the stage this year for four- to five-minute sets, Dawson said, adding up to what he calls a "Columbus comedy all-star weekend." All shows are in the Healing Arts Tent.
