The Viaero Great American Comedy Festival was created in 2008 to pay tribute to the legacy of Norfolk's favorite native son, Johnny Carson.
That same vision continues to hold true today.
Honoring his legacy as one of America's greatest comedians ever, paying tribute to his status as a TV icon and rememberring with gratitude the fondness Carson had for the community he called home - That's the foundation of the Viaero Great American Comedy Festival.
