We don’t know about you but here at INDYtoday, we’d do almost anything for a good laugh — so we gave April Fools’ Day some sincere consideration. Should we hit them with some #fakenews? Report that Indianapolis is changing its name to Hoosierville? Ahhh, the possibilities.

We decided it was best to leave the tomfoolery in the hands of the experts — our local comedians. So today, we are catching up with the stand-up comedy scene in Indy + looking ahead to some big names in the comedy world who are paying us a visit.
