If you're looking for a good laugh, beginning tomorrow, Fort Wayne's Let's Comedy is hosting a four day festival called Let's Fest.

Building on the assortment of crowd pleasers featured at last year's innaugural event, festivalgoers can look forward to another helping of shows like The Trap Doors Stories, and Late Late Breakfast, as well as popular headliners, and plenty of musical acts and improv activity.

And with more than fifteen events taking place at six different venues around town, featuring national and regional acts, and including an all-Indiana show, there's likely to be something fun for everyone.

Earlier this week, WBOI's Julia Meek decided to get straight to the punchline, so she invited Let's co-founder, Jared Busch and Ben Larson, host of The Trap Door Stories on opening night, into the studio to discuss the state of comedy here in Fort Wayne as well as around the state, and learn what's so funny about this year's Let's Fest.
