How to remove sidebar from the comments page?

I want to remove the sidebar from the comments page of a blog.  Actually I would like it to work correctly, but that will be another post.  For now I just want it out of the way for appearance sake.  This is blog page  http://www.myzooanimalhospital.com/blog
If you click on a post, to read and see comments, the sidebar is intrusive as the page is laid out.  I cannot find a page for comments in the admin pages, only blog page.  Is there a place I can turn off the sidebar on the page that shows the post?

Comments are not a separate page template with its own sidebar, instead it's called by the post template (usually single.php in the theme).  When you edit the post, check the meta boxes for a "Template" pull down and see if the theme already has a full-width option.  If not, you can make one easily enough:

Ok, got it figured.  the single.php had a <?php get_sidebar(); ?> line at the bottom.  I had commented it out using //
I tried several comment types ( //, #, )  but it didn't like them.  I had to use

*  <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

for the comment to take.  Must be the version of php I guess.
