GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Organizers of Gilda’s LaughFest, the comedy festival that raises money for Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids, have plugged a hole in the festival’s schedule.

Eric Andre had cancelled his scheduled appearance, but LaughFest announced Monday that Natasha Leggero will take his place.

Andre, star of The Eric Andre Show on the cable network Adult Swim, had scheduling conflicts with what LaughFest described as the show’s “extended production schedule.”

Leggero’s performance was added to the Bud Light Blue Late Comedy Series at the Orbit Room, Tuesday, March 12, 8 p.m., with Neal Brennan.
