GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan — Talk show host Jay Leno, comedian-actress Lily Tomlin and comedian-actor Chris Tucker are in the lineup for next year's Gilda's LaughFest.
Organizers on Tuesday announced the first round of talent and shows for the event.
"Tonight" show host Leno is headlining LaughFest's "Signature Event." Tomlin's appearance is in partnership with Broadway Grand Rapids.
West Michigan's fourth annual festival of laughter is to take place March 6-16. It honors the memory of comedian Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer in 1989.
LaughFest is to feature more than 100 community showcases and other events at locations in Grand Rapids, Lowell and Holland.
