Get ready for the funny. The 2014 Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, March 26-30 in Atlanta, promises to be another showcase for the city’s growing reputation as a great place for clubs and comics.

The five-day event brings together producers, managers and agents in search of new talent, and includes headline performances at the Laughing Skull Lounge in Midtown and other area venues.

But the heart and soul of the festival is the weekend competition featuring up-and-coming comedians from across the United States and Canada. Among the competition hopefuls is Atlanta's Gilbert Lawand.
