Burn some gas: Norfolk Comedy Festival

Johnny Carson with an owl
The Norfolk, Nebraska Great American Comedy Festival is happening right now just a few country miles from Omaha. If you like comedy acts, plan a trip to the festival before it winds up on the 22nd.

You may know that Norfolk (pronounced nor-fork) claims to be the late great Johnny Carson's home town. The Tonight Show star has been kind to his hometown and to the University of Nebraska.

If you are sick of sitting at home wondering if the price of gasoline will ever return to "affordable", consider copping a few laughs in nearby Norfolk. Do it before the Solons of the Nebraska Unicameral impose their 3¢ per gallon tax increase on July 1st.
