Boise's Funniest Person 2015: Finals

Saturday, Aug. 1

by

It's down to the wire for the final five amateur comedians who will battle it out for the title of Boise's Funniest Person 2015. The hopefuls were culled from a group of 20 contestants, pared down to 10, then teamed with a professional comic before duking it out in the semi-finals. Aside from the coveted title, the winner will also go home with a cash prize of $1,000 (courtesy of Grind Modern Burger).

Boise's Funniest Person came out of the gate at a gallop three years ago, and it continues to be a popular event with professional comedians, up-and-coming comics and comedy crowds: Shows are usually sold out.

While the saying might be "everyone's a comedian," there can only be one "Boise's Funniest Person."
