208 Comedy Fest

Various locations, Sept. 6-9


The laugh-out-loud brainstorm of local comedians Dylan Haas and Emma Arnold, 208 Comedy Fest is back to tickle Boise's funnybones for another year. The three-day, multi-venue event will give a platform to more than 50 stand-up comedians from the Treasure Valley and beyond, highlighting national acts like Kyle Kinane (of Nexflix's The Standups and Kyle Kinane: Loose In Chicago), Caitlin Gill (a Time Out Los Angeles 2018 Comic To Watch credited in Misfits & Monsters) and Dave Ross (a Moth Grand Slam winner and host of the podcast Terrified) as well as local names like Lady Bizness and Sophie Hughes. Plus, this year's fest is charitable as well as funny, sending a portion of ticket sales to the Women's and Children's Alliance.
