Almost as exciting as this past Tuesday's election is this upcoming Tuesday's announcement of the LaughFest 2013 lineup.

The comedy festival's lineup of events and performers is scheduled to be released at an announcement breakfast on Nov. 13 at 7:30 a.m. at the Grand Rapids Art Museum.

LaughFest Grand Rapids is scheduled for March 7-March 17. Last year, more than 56,000 people attended the festival's 323 events. This year will mark the festival's third appearance in Grand Rapids.

Last year's festival featured Whoopi Goldberg, Martin Short, Jim Gaffigan and Rodney Carrington.

Laughfest raises money for Gilda's Club Grand Rapids to provide support for families and individuals coping with cancer.
