Failure:Lab | LaughFest

March 19, 2016 @ 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Failure:Lab | LaughFest is a raw and intimate event showcasing personal stories of failure.

Failure:Lab | LaughFest is in partnership with LaughFest and Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids! The event will feature two visiting comics and two community leaders as storytellers + one entertainer that is certian to dazzle the audience. This is a limited seating engagement and tickets will go fast.

With a refreshing enviornment of openness, Failure:Lab helps pave the way for change by crushing the isolation and stigma around failure. Failure:Lab empowers audience members to persevere by exploring the space between people who fail and quit, and those who get back up again.

How does it work?

Failure:Lab mixes powerful stories, music, and audience interaction to create an intimate evening of discussion and learning.


Each storyteller shares a personal failure. There’s no talk of lessons learned or who’s to blame – just the story of what went wrong.

Audience Members:

After each narrative there is time for the audience to reflect on and tweet what the story means to them.


A performance follows to clear the air and recharge the room.

By talking about failure, the audience can begin a dialogue about how the local community can help foster success. Failure then takes its rightful place as the crucial first step to success.

Embrace it, learn from it, build on it.
