So, you think you’re funny, huh?

Everybody tells you you’re great…you should be a comedian.

Okay, now it’s “put up, or shut up” time.  LaughFest is just around the corner and this is the time to prove your worth.

All ages and groups of any size can showcase their talents during Gilda’s LaughFest by signing up now through January 11, 2013 online at

The nation’s only community-wide festival of laughter is recruiting talent to participate in a variety of free community showcases for professionals, amateurs and anyone in between. New additions to this year’s repertoire of free community showcases include the college stand-up showcase and college sketch/improve showcase.

LaughFest officials expect to host 100 community showcases and other free events at various locations in downtown Grand Rapids, Lowell and Holland. In addition to newly announced showcases, categories include: stand-up comedy, literary, music, short-film, theater, dance, kids’ jokes and “Gilda’s Club: What’s Funny About That?” These non-ticketed events will be free of charge and will be held at various times throughout the 10 days of LaughFest, March 7 – 17, 2013.

So get your “funny bone” going and sign up.  If you’re interested, do it at under the Get Involved section or call (616)735-HAHA (4242). Applicants will be notified in late January or early February.
