In the last two years, Boise has experienced a renaissance in stand-up comedy. A major player in that scene was local stand-up Aaron Sheehan, whose snappy one-liners, excellent crowd work and truly creepy mustache could help audiences recover from even the most painful first-timers at an open mic.
But after tonight [Wednesday, June 6], Boise is going to have to get by without him. Sheehan is moving to the big island of Hawaii for a job. His final performance will be tonight at Liquid Laughs, where comedians and fans alike are throwing him a big send-off party.
Before he leaves town, BW did a quick Q&A and Mad Lib with Sheehan:
Will you be pursuing comedy in Hawaii?
They have a few clubs, but from what I've heard, it's a hard scene for an outsider.
What will you miss?
I feel like Boise has a great team of new comedians and they are a lot of help, especially in the writing department. I will miss the people themselves. I feel like we have an amazing group here.
Mad Lib: Without me, Boise's comedy scene will be ADJECTIVE and ADJECTIVE. It might even need a ADJECTIVE NOUN.
Without me, Boise's comedy scene will be freckled and pink. It might even need a handlebar mustache.
The show starts at 8 p.m. at Liquid Laughs and is FREE.
After that, you can follow his hijinx on Twitter.
