The country’s top comedians are appearing in Grand Rapids through Sunday at Gilda’s Laugh Fest. The event supports the work of Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids, inspired by the late Gilda Radner to help people who are dealing with cancer.

Tonight, the festival features W. Kamau Bell, the host of “Totally Biased,” which appears Thursday nights on FX.  Bell discusses racism in America and what it’s like to have a television show.
