Gilda’s Laughfest was created in 2011 to celebrate laughter for the health of it, and has been making festivalgoers laugh ever since. The festival was founded by Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids and features stand-up, improv, film, authors, community showcases, and a variety of seriously funny stuff. The festival honors Gilda Radner, one of the funniest people to ever grace any stage. 100% of the proceeds of Gilda’s Laughfest benefits the free support programs of Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids.
