Last weekend brought laughter and applause to the BOB in downtown Grand Rapids. Corey Rodrigues (Gotham Live), Dusty Slay (Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel), Andrew Sleighter (Last Comic Standing), and Taylor Tomlinson (Last Comic Standing) showcased their talents and clean comedy to audiences at multiple sold out shows.

Every year Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids brings comedians from all over the country to LaughFest, a community wide festival that honors laughter as an essential part of emotional health and well-being. This 10-day festival takes place every March to bring fun and laughter to attendees in the dreary winter months.

LaughFest features stand-up, improv, showcases, and more to raise money to provide education, lectures, workshops, and social activities that are designed to support emotional health in the Grand Rapids area.

Bummed you missed out? There’s still time to catch some comedy!
