Gilda's LaughFest kicks off on March 6 with another attempt to break a world record. In the past, people gathered in downtown Grand Rapids with rubber chickens, mustaches, cardboard beaks. This year, the goal is to get the most people wearing sunglasses in the dark.
We lobbed a few questions at Grand Rapids-based comedian Adam Degi about his journey through the sometimes-thankless ranks of comedy.

We lobbed a few questions at Amy Ruis, owner of Art of the Table and Aperitivo. She schooled us on what her business is all about along with discussing Art of the Table's 10th anniversary.

Perhaps a trip to the theater would do the trick?
Quick. Name a popular 21st century astrophysicist. Chances are you can only think of one: Neil deGrasse Tyson. The quick-witted Tyson joins the ranks of Bill Nye and Carl Sagan for making science downright cool.
In 2012, SCOPE NYC named you one of the world's top 100 artists. How did you feel when you found out about the honor? I was ecstatic when I got the news, because it was an international call for entry. I felt very honored to be featured ... It was a great feeling.
How did it affect your career? It basically continued on as normal ... but all the exposure has been great.
