Jeremy Aevermann, co-owner of Liquid Laughs, is optimistic about this year’s annual “Boise’s Funniest Person” competition. “We have a great group of 20 to start with again this year,” he says. “Looks like it is going to be a ton of fun.” For the next four Saturdays, amateur stand-up comedians will battle for bragging rights and a $1,000 cash prize. The finals are July 30, but plenty of funny stuff happens during the preliminary rounds. Like watching an inexperienced hopeful implode on stage! Just kidding! The camaraderie involved in this event always keeps things funny and festive.
8 p.m. Saturday, July 9, Liquid Laughs, 405 S. 8th St. $10. liquidboise.com.
