All Laughs During First Ever Free Beer and Hot Wings Live Show at LaughFest 2013

Free Beer & Hot Wings Show

It was a busy time for Grand Rapids this past weekend. Not only was St. Patrick’s Day coming up, but comedy festival Gilda’s LaughFest was entering the final stretch of their 10-day marathon. The first Live at Night With the Free Beer & Hot Wings Show was Friday night (March 15) at The Intersection and one of the many sold out showcases during LaughFest.

The crowd was ready to laugh and the morning crew delivered in spades. Things kicked off with “Name That Blank” that saw participants from the audience compete to win prizes. Other segments included the Free Beer & Hot Wings Show critiquing commercials from local businesses, the ever-popular “Women’s Forum,” a live version of “Dumber Than Zane Trivia” and a past Joe Stunt done by a crowd member.

Easily the most entertaining part of the night was “Family Feud” between on-air personalities from Fox 17 and WZZM 13. Fox’s Michele DeSelms led her team to victory over Lauren Stanton’s ZZM crew, but not before some playful and hilarious exchanges were made between the two TV news rivals. We think Team ZZM may have had more drinks than they should have before playing in a game show.

Thanks to LaughFest, Mast Heating & Cooling, O’Riley’s Custom Power Sports, Crooked Goose and the Intersection for helping us make Live at Night With the Free Beer & Hot Wings Show happen. Most importantly, thanks to everyone who came out to the show. We hope to see you next year.
