LaughFest names headliners
The annual festival of laughter in West Michigan has named its headlining acts.
Organizers of Gilda's LaughFest said today that George Lopez, Patton Oswalt, Wanda Sykes, Bo Burnham and Pete Holmes are among the performers who will headline the event.
Others acts slated to perform include Lavell Crawford, Billy Gardell and Brian Posehn.
“We were looking to bring back some of our most popular acts from the festival's past, while continuing to bring fresh faces," said Joanne Roehm, festival director.
The event will run March 5-15.
LaughFest honors the memory of comedian Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer in 1989.
All proceeds from the event benefit the cancer, grief and support programs at Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids.
