Just Joking Around Columbus

From open mics to comedy tours, here’s where you can catch comedians cracking jokes.

Are you sick of reading angry Facebook rants and politically charged tweets that make you want to flush your phone down the toilet? Do you have a midterm tomorrow that you’ve already given up on? Do you just need to laugh a little and forget for a moment that the robot dogs from Black Mirror are a not so distant reality?

If you answered yes to one or all of these questions, then it’s time you checked out Columbus’ comedy world because everyone needs to laugh a little more.

And seriously, those dogs are being built, look it up…
