Comedy Returns To Boise: 9 Comedians We Can’t Wait To See
There will be no shortage of laughter over the next 12 months in Boise. Several stand-up tours were scheduled to come to the area before the pandemic that have been rescheduled, plus a few new ones that we are really excited about. It's great to see comedy picking up across the Treasure Valley like music concerts are. The level of comedian that is making stops in Boise is top-notch. This may be the best year for comedy in the city's history, which is good because we deserve it after last year!
