We are seriously sorry to have to announce the cancellation of the last three days of Gilda’s LaughFest. We greatly appreciate your support as we navigate a chapter that none of us have ever journeyed before.
Below is the full statement from Gilda’s LaughFest. We thank you for your understanding and continued embrace of our Gilda’s Club mission.
Gilda’s LaughFest was designed to raise awareness of Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids and its free emotional health support of children, adults, families and friends on any kind of cancer journey or those grieving a death due to any cause. As an organization supporting those on a cancer journey, it is only appropriate that we cancel the remainder of the festival beginning with events scheduled for Friday, March 13 – Sunday, March 15. We recognize the need to protect our community from the potential spread of COVID -19, and will follow the recommendations set by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, which encourages the cancellation or postponement of large gatherings.
Maria Bamford is revered for her deeply personal and experimental comedy about mental illness. She starred in the surreal, semi-autobiographical Netflix comedy series Lady Dynamite, about a comedian who suffers a nervous breakdown, and is the star of three unconventional hour-long stand-up specials: Weakness is the Brand, Old Baby and Maria Bamford, the special, special,special!
Maria was the first female comic to have two half-hour Comedy Central Presents specials and starred alongside Patton Oswalt, Zach Galifianakis and Brian Posehn in the Comedy Central series The Comedians of Comedy and Netflix’s Comedians of Comedy: The Movie. She also created and starred in the cult hit web series The Maria Bamford Show, in which she plays all the characters.
Maria is often recognized for her prolific voice over work, including characters on Big Mouth, BoJack Horseman, Summer Camp Island, Adventure Time, Talking Tom and Friends, Bob’s Burgers, Legend of Korra, Puss in Boots, CatDog and PBS’s Emmy-winning series Word Girl. She also stars as Tilly Mulch in Team Coco’s scripted podcast Frontier Tween. Maria played DeBrie Bardeaux on Netflix’s Arrested Development and recurred on the ABC hit series Fresh off the Boat. She is the 2014 winner of the American Comedy Award for Best Club Comic.
Maria’s late night appearances include CONAN, The Tonight Show, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Late Night with Seth Meyers. Client may cancel any orders over the posted ticket limit. Event has an order delivery delay that will lift on Feb 5, 2020.
