Gilda’s Club Announces LaughFest Lineup

Gilda's Club LaughFest

Gilda’s Club of Grand Rapids announced their 2012 lineup for LaughFest and it’s a big one running March 8 – 18, 2012!

After a record breaking inaugural year you’d think it would be hard to top Betty White, Bill Cosby and the like. But LaughFest #2 looks equally exciting. What’s not to like with Whoopi Goldberg coming. That’s right, Whoopi Goldberg, not to mention the very popular Jim Gaffigan, along with Anthony Jeselnik, Anjelah Johnson, Bo Burnham, Amy Schumer, Marc Maron, Rodney Carrington, Mike Epps.

Then, there is the Gilda’s Club Gala.  Betty White was the “star” of the show this past March, and for 2012, ‘Saturday Night Live’ alums Martin Short and Kevin Nealon will be the stars along with former SNL writer, Alan Zweibel.

The festival will bring 60 artists to town for 200 events, including 100 free events. Kids’ entertainers include Laurie Berkner and the Laurie Berkner Band, familiar from the Nick Jr. TV channel. There will be more family entertainment, too, including more clean adult humor

Also, Patch Adams, a medical doctor, clown, social activist and more, will conduct a workshop while he’s in town.

You’ll be able to buy ticket packages starting at 9 a.m. Nov. 19. Single tickets, ranging from $7 to $77.50, go on sale at a later date.
