LaughFest opens March 8 and runs through March 18.
Organizers of LaughFest also announced this week that Kathleen Madigan will be back for a second year. Madigan will be performing at Fountain Street Church at 7 p.m. Monday, March 12. Tickets for her reserved-seating show range from $27.50 to $37.50.
Additional ticketed shows announced include the sketch double feature at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 14, at the Ladies Literary Club. “Don’t We Boys” and “Peter ‘n Chris” are nationally touring comedy shows. Tickets are $15 each.
River City Improv, a national touring troupe based locally, will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 17, at the Ladies Literary Club for $10 per person.
Tickets range from $7 for family friendly events, such as the Super Saturday Kids Zone at Grand Rapids Community College’s Ford Fieldhouse, to $57.50 for premium seating for Whoopi Goldberg’s March 9 performance.
Festival ticket packages drove early sales as nearly 2,000 packages were sold through Jan. 6 when ticket-package sales closed. As a result, tickets are no longer available for Amy Schumer, 10 p.m. show; and the Stand-Up Competition Finals, 7 p.m. show. Tickets are still available for Schumer’s 11:59 p.m. show and the 6 p.m. dinner/show, in addition to the 9:30 p.m. show for the Stand-Up Competition Finals.
There will be a limited number of individual tickets to see Martin Short and Kevin Nealon with Alan Zweibel perform during Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids’ annual fundraising dinner event. Those tickets will go on sale Feb. 3 for $250 — which includes dinner, the performance and a donation to Gilda’s Club. Currently, full tables for 10 guests can be purchased for the annual fundraiser for $2,500 by calling Gilda’s LaughFest headquarters.
