More than 25 comedy groups and 15 stand-up acts are scheduled to participate in the 2011 Milwaukee Comedy Festival, scheduled for Aug. 4-7 at ComedySportz, 420 S. 1st St.

The event features festival shows, kick-off events and workshops throughout the week. View the complete schedule here.

"The fest aims to bring all different forms of comedy together in the best way possible," said Matt Kemple, festival founder and producer. "When we see the performers having as much fun as the audience, we know we have done our job."

Kemple and co-producer Patrick Schmitz will host the festival, which this year moves to ComedySportz to accommodate more acts and bigger audiences.
