Festival of laughter in western Michigan unveils headliners

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) – An annual festival of laughter in western Michigan is announcing top acts for its sixth season.

Organizers of Gilda’s LaughFest say Thursday that Seth Meyers, Kathy Griffin and Marlon Wayans are among the headlining performers during the March 10-20 event.

The festival honors the memory of comedian Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer in 1989. Proceeds and donations from LaughFest support free emotional health care programs offered for children and adults living with cancer and grief through Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids.

Ticket packages go on sale Friday. Meyers performs March 12 during the Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids Signature Event at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids.

This year, more than 45,000 people attended LaughFest’s ticketed and free events in Grand Rapids, Lowell and Holland.
