Best Local Comedian

Lady Bizness

Comedians Alisha Donahue and Jynx Jenkins—the smoky broads of Lady Bizness—keep the tradition of #winning alive with regular stage appearances at Neurolux and their weekly podcast. Also, they are way more funny and fierce than Charlie Sheen.

2nd Place: Emma Arnold—Comedians have one of the hardest jobs on the planet. It requires insight, pluck and timing, not to mention toughness and judgment. Boise comedian Emma Arnold has it all, and has taken her seemingly bottomless talents on tour with her weekly podcast and hopping up on stages across the country bringing her mix of humor and courage to the people.

3rd Place: Eli Nary—Eli Nary's career is already long and storied. Earlier in the decade, he was a member of Boise Mayor Dave Bieter's Youth Advisory Council speaking out against texting while driving. In 2015, as a theater major at College of Idaho, he was a contestant in the Boise's Funniest Person contest. He didn't win, but wasn't deterred, either. This is the up-and-coming star's first appearance on the Best Local Comedian list.
