Wild Goose Creative put on their first comedy festival back in February, and it was so successful they couldn't wait a full year to put on another one. So we get treated to Columbus Comedy Festival 1.5 this weekend.

Wild Goose Creative put on their first comedy festival back in February, and it was so successful they couldn't wait a full year to put on another one. So we get treated to Columbus Comedy Festival 1.5 this weekend.

A combination of improv, stand-up, sketch and video comedy segments will be presented each night of the three-day fest.

Everything starts Thursday evening with Comedy Revolver - a mixture of stand-up and improv routines during which a panel of comedians heckle a performer. Each comedian rotates between performing and acting on the panel, making it a fun competition.

"We used it to kick off the festival last time, and it's a great way to do it because it's a mix of styles. It's just a very fun and boisterous introduction to the festival," said Columbus Comedy Festival organizer and Wild Goose co-founder Nick Dekker.

The rest of Thursday is rounded out with improv sets by See Spot Run and video segments by Screen Comedy.

A well-rounded lineup of stand-up comedians will perform Friday and Saturday nights.

Besides stand-up, Friday will include improv sets from Fake Bacon, See You Thursday and Full Frontal Nudity and sketch comedy from Dekker's Wild Goose Comedy Cabaret and Sketch by Number, who won Shadowbox's sketch comedy festival in July.

Saturday brings a two-hour stand-up set and the capstone of the festival, Monday Night Live. Usually held the first Monday of the month at Wild Goose, the popular act mixes sketch, stand-up and video comedy, and is always a good time.
