Final Preps Underway For TC Comedy Fest

Tickets are selling and comedians are arriving, but there's still a lot of work to be done. The Traverse City Comedy Arts Festival kicks off in less than 24 hours. Today festival organizers worked on last minute preparations. The physical setup will happen tomorrow morning at the venues, but today was all about logistics. From answering phone calls and emails, to scheduling volunteers and selling tickets, it was a busy day. Around 500 volunteers will help put the event on, most of whom had to be trained and outfitted tonight. Tickets are still available for most shows and can be purchased in advance or at the door. The kick-off event starts tomorrow at 5:30pm at the City Opera House. Erika Waddell and photojournalist Justin DePrekel have the story.
