Ha Ha Ha! LaughFest and Your Library

Once again the library has teamed up with LaughFest for some pretty funny events. We’ve got something for everyone (except curmudgeons. There’s no pleasing them).

Humorous Speech Contest

 Can you tell a funny story? Do you make people laugh? Come join the Grand Rapids Public Library, Toastmasters International and LaughFest in a humor contest.

With a smooth and clever style, a great smile, and a contagious laugh Kevin has been entertaining in clubs and colleges across the country for 13 years. He is performing in LaughFest’s Best of the Midwest Competition and has appeared on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, NBC’s Last Comic Standing and the films Making Revolution and Flat Chested. He will discuss his career in comedy in this interactive Q&A style discussion.

Kid’s Joke Night
Thursday, March 13, 6:00 pm
Main Library | Level 2 | Storytime Room

 Are your kids hilarious? Children in 5th grade and younger are encouraged to participate in this night of hilarity. They’ll have the opportunity to step-up to the microphone and share their funniest joke. We’ll also have Mr. Picklehead provide entertainment with his Dilly Songs. Sign up ahead of time or just show up at the event to get on stage and tell their funniest jokes! Visit LaughFestgr.org to sign up.

Times and locations vary

 What do librarians take with them when they go fishing? Bookworms! The Grand Rapids Public Library will keep your family in stitches with funny books, ridiculous rhymes and a crazy craft for children of all ages. This is one pre-reading class that is sure to be silly! For kids 5 and under.
