LaughFest Announces 2014 Lineup - Jay Leno, Lily Tomlin, Chris Tucker & More, 3/6-16

There will also be the Super Saturday Kids Zone, a themed carnival for all ages, and the Saturday Nite Teen Zone, a 13 and up hangout for teens. The Bud Light Presents Blue & Late Night Comedy Series features two great performers, 30 Rock's Judah Friedlander, and author and Chelsea Lately writer and round table guest, Jen Kirkman. These two shows won't want to be missed! Rounding out the announcements is LaughFest's Best, which features late night shows with little sampling of comedians from across the festival. You never know who might show up!

And local comedy troupe River City Improv, representing Calvin College, who will put on a show that weaves skits, games and songs with audience suggestions to create a unique entertainment experience. We will once again be running the "High Five" campaign, which aims to raise $100,000 for children living with cancer or grief and for in-school emotional health programs. Local companies Terryberry, Feyen Zylstra, Pioneer Construction, Eenhoorn, and American International Foods will turn every $5 donation into a $10 donation, matching up to $50,000 of funds raised through the "High Five" campaign. Individuals interested in donating a "High Five" may do so by purchasing a button at a participating restaurant or business in West Michigan, or donate by clicking here.

Won't you high five us? Do you think this is all the talent coming to LaughFest 2014? Try again! We will be announcing more people in a few weeks so stay tuned!
