Staff Pick: Second Shift Comedy Tour

Jesse Tigges, Columbus Alive

You may have heard that there's a pretty awesome comedy festival going on this weekend at Wild Goose Creative. [Spoiler Alert] It's the Columbus Comedy Festival.

But there's another chance to see some great standup if you happen to miss this weekend's laugh festivities. This upcoming Wednesday and Thursday features former Columbus Comedy Fest headliners in Laura Sanders and Justin Golak.

It's not hard to recommend this show - whether you hit the fest at Wild Goose or not - because these are two of the wittiest and funniest comics to hold a mic. The best part is this is a two-night comedy show, part of Golak and Sanders' current tour, taking place at two different venues, Spacebar in Old North and Actual Brewing Co. on the East Side. There's no excuse for missing one of these shows, and trust me, you'll regret missing either.
