The Grand Rapids Public Museum and Gilda’s LaughFest are excited to host a seriously funny evening at the Museum in coordination with this year’s LaughFest festival. LaughFest: Night at the Museum will take place on Wednesday, March 8 featuring comedians Adam Degi and Will Oltman. 


Adam Degi

Will Oltman

Comedian Adam DegiAdam Degi was a performer in The Best of The Midwest Competition at Gilda’s LaughFest in 2019. His 2nd album ‘Limp Nodes’ is available on iTunes, Spotify and SiriusXM. Adam performed at the prestigious Boston Comedy Festival in 2016. In 2014 he was in the Semi-Finals of the Comedy 10K. He won the Funniest Person in Grand Rapids Competition in 2009- just his 2nd year into comedy! His strangely endearing personality and ability to riff, rant and improvise sets him apart and makes every show unique. Adam is a two-time cancer survivor (…and a comedy survivor). Comedian Will OltmanWill Oltman as a plucky schoolboy with a burning desire to entertain, Will began honing his performance skills and impressing crowds by age 10.His relentless devotion to his craft has left him with amazing skills and very few friends.You will be impressed by the multitude of objects he can juggle while bantering with the crowd. Clubs, balls, and rings, yes, but also traditional cigar boxes, shaker cups, Chinese yo-yo, tennis cans, and hats. Will invites his audiences to play along, making his shows interactive for people of all ages and audiences of any size. You will laugh at his unique brand of humor and become filled with awestruck wonderment at his champion juggling skills and award-winning beard.
