GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- They call it “serious fun”.

Last night they kicked off LaughFest in Grand Rapids by unofficially seizing the world’s record for the most people wearing fake moustaches in one location. They shattered the old record of 648, set in St. Louis last year, by gathering 1,544 people together last night.

Gilda’s Club CEO Leann Arkema says for their clients laughter is therapy and they take making people laugh seriously.

For the next two weeks, dozens of comedians will be performing in Grand Rapids, some of the shows are free, most will require the purchase of tickets.  

The proceeds all go to support Gilda’s Club in Grand Rapids.

The folks from Guinness will need a few weeks to verify, authenticate and certify the record.
