Idaho Laugh Fest



Comedy fans can shake off the winter ice with four days of comedy at the Idaho Laugh Fest. The annual event started four years ago as an attempt to "launch a full-blown, five alarm comedy explosion" in Idaho—and the fire's still burning. This year, 60 comics will perform in 16 shows full of standup, improv and musical comedy, ranging in content from family friendly to fully adult. Headlining the event is Fortune Feimster, a comedian and actress who rose to fame on the 2010 season of Last Comic Standing, was named by Variety as one of the top 10 comics to watch in 2014, and has made appearances on The Mindy Project and Chelsea Lately. As a bonus, Boise performers can get a leg up on improv, comedy writing and acting during a series of $10 workshops hosted by accomplished laugh makers.
