Calendar Looking Ahead Mark your calendar for these fun-filled events held across the country in March and April. GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN MAR Gilda's LaughFest "Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh," said George Bernard Shaw. Nevertheless, a quarter-century after her untimely passing at 42, Gilda Radner, the legendary Michigan native, comedienne, actress, and Saturday Night Live vet, continues to inspire joy, levity, and laughter courtesy of Gilda's LaughFest. The 4-year-old festival is a hotbed of hilarity, featuring more than 200 free and ticketed comedy shows in some 40 venues throughout downtown Grand Rapids. A collision of stand-up, sketch comedy, improvisation, and yukfilled films, this year's 10-day LaughFest boasts headlining gigs by Jay Leno, Chris Tucker, and Lily Tomlin, raising awareness and funds for Gilda's Club Grand Rapids, an organization providing free emotional health care to those stricken with cancer. Best-selling author and comedian Jim Gaffigan, 30 Rock vet Judah Friedlander, and Comedy Central fave Nick Thune also play solo shows, while a wide range of Clean Comedy Showcases offer family-friendly guffaws for those with small fries. Isn't it time to get your dose of the best medicine?
