LaughFest is the nation’s first community-wide festival of laughter. Created by Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids, and launched in March 2011 to celebrate laughter for the health of it, the festival features stand-up, improv, film, showcases, and a variety of seriously funny stuff. KBOgroup teamed with Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids in 2011 to develop the production and staging of this well-loved festival.

We provide support in performance halls, theaters, field houses, event spaces, and less likely venues, as well as streets and outdoor plazas. The roster of comedy legends and up-and-comers we have helped stage for LaughFest is amazing! Lewis Black, Wayne Brady, Jim Breuer, Margaret Cho, Judah Friedlander, Jim Gaffigan, Whoopi Goldberg, Kathy Griffin, Kevin Hart, D.L.Hughley, Gabriel Iglesias, Anthony Jesselink, Jay Leno, Marc Maron, Joel McHale, Kevin Nealon, Seth Meyers, Jim Norton, Brian Regan, Amy Schumer, Martin Short, Sinbad, Lily Tomlin, Chris Tucker, Betty White, Justin Willman, and many more.

KBOgroup continues to enjoy an on-going production partner relationship for this seriously fun event. Since all proceeds from LaughFest benefit the programs offered through Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids, we feel especially great about working with and supporting this organization.Check out LaughFest at:
