If you weren't among the 56,000 people who attended one of the 323 humorous events at Laughfest this year, plan to laugh, chuckle and double over as you support Gilda's Club Grand Rapids at next year's event. When you need a smile or two in the meantime, you can still get your laugh on at one of these 3 Grand Rapids venues:
