With four children at home, a daughter she previously gave up for adoption back in her life and the end of a 16-year marriage, Idaho Laugh Fest creator Meg Bryant has enough emotional fodder to power a dozen one-woman shows—and she has decided to start with one: "Meg Bryant is Somebody." For two nights at Boise Contemporary Theater, the comedian, author and improv instructor will entertain audiences with jokes, stories, poems, musical numbers and more.
"We all crave validation, significance and a sense of belonging. It's a lonely place when we get wrapped up inside our own minds," Bryant wrote in a press release. "As important as the healing properties of laughter are, the ability to let down our walls... [is] just as vital."
