Longtime comedy fans are likely familiar with Auggie Smith. When he first started doing standup nearly 20 years ago, the whip-smart, acerbic comedian would hit the road from his Portland, Ore., home, making Boise a frequent stop. All that work paid off. In the past five or six years, he has become a fan favorite on crazy-popular syndicated radio program, The Bob and Tom Show and has won some prestigious national comedy competitions. He also released another CD, got married, had a kid, moved to L.A. and started a podcast, Motivationally Speaking, in which he chats with other comedians. Even though he's kind of a big deal now, Smith continues to tour, playing large rooms as well as the smaller clubs where he cut his teeth. As the saying goes, "laughter is the best medicine," so go see the doctor at Liquid while he's in.
