LaughFest sets world record for fake mustaches story image
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - LaughFest continues Friday in Grand Rapids  after setting a new world record Thursday night.

More than 1,500 people showed up wearing fake mustaches.

The previous record was set by the St. Louis Rams last fall with more than 600 people slapping on fake mustaches.   

LaughFest runs through March 17th, featuring everything from big name comedians to family friendly shows.

The proceeds benefit Gilda's Club Grand Rapids.

The event is also helping out another good cause. During the festival Goodwill Industries will be giving away 2,500 laundry bags to people attending some of the community showcase shows.

They ask that people then fill those bags with gently used donations and then return them to any local Goodwill.

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) -- Angela Jolie says she feels a responsibility to tell stories about Cambodia -- because one of her adopted sons is from there. The actress says she feels "a deep connection" to the Southeast Asian nation and that she deeply respects the people. Jolie is in Cambodia, working on a Netflix film about the 1970s slaughter carried out by the communist Khmer Rouge regime, which is blamed for the deaths of nearly 2 million people. She says she hopes the movie will show both the hardships of war -- and the dignity and resilience of the Cambodian people.


PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- An interesting twist in the Bill Cosby case. A lawyer for one of the women accusing the comedian of sexual assault is challenging Cosby's claim that he could "read" a woman's sexual cues. In a motion filed yesterday, a lawyer says her client Andrea Constand is gay and was dating a woman when Cosby made his advances. The case was settled a decade ago. But recently the two sides have claimed each other broke the confidentiality clause of that agreement.


MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) -- Flavor Flav is not only having trouble with the law -- he's also having trouble with lawyers. The reality TV star has fired another of his legal reps. The beef stems from a case more than a year ago when he was stopped for speeding while driving to his mother's funeral on New York's Long Island. He was hit with a felony charge and has had difficulty getting the case pleaded to a lesser charge. But prosecutors and the judge say the latest plea offer has been pulled off the table.


BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- Aziz Ansari has been on "Parks and Recreation" and "Scrubs." But now, he's getting his own series. It will be on Netflix and will be titled "Master of None." The comedy will follow Ansari as a 30-year old, living in New York City. He is the creator of the series and will also be a co-executive producer of the project. Master of None makes its debut on Netflix on Nov. 6.


TACOMA, Wash. (AP) -- It's one way to get people to watch a movie. Producers say one of the stars of their low-budget flick will stay in the project -- despite being busted as a fugitive. Police in Washington state say 44-year-old Jason Stange slipped away from a halfway house last year. They were put back on his trail when photos of him showed up in a newspaper article on the movie, shooting in Olympia. Federal agents tracked him down last Friday at a restaurant near the set. He had been doing time for an armed bank robbery in 2006.


NEW YORK (AP) -- Looks like "Celebrity Family Feud" is TV's version of lemonade -- something people gulp down when it's hot outside. ABC aired six one-hour editions of the game show hosted by Steve Harvey -- and it turned out to be a hit. It averaged 9.1 million viewers, making it the most-watched new TV show this summer. ABC says with those numbers, there's a good chance the game show will return, though it's unclear if it will air during non-summer months.
