About Us

Let’s starch at the beginning. Wait, what was that? We meant START. Ha. Starch.

What is this, a potato website? Well, we do HAVE potatoes here, but this is more than that. Much more.

It all began on a crisp morning, some 150 years ago. Abe Lincoln made an honest state out of us when he signed Idaho into the union on March 4th, 1863.

It was just a few short weeks later when a boisterous outburst of sound flew from the faces of local residents as Cornelius Huckleberry tripped up the stairs.

They called this sound “laughter.” It’s true. Idahoans created life’s two greatest inventions. Laughter, and the TV.

FAST FORWARD 150 YEARS TO THE BUSTLING METROPOLIS OF BOISE, IDAHO.

The year is 2014 and preparations are underway to launch a full-blown, five-alarm, comedy explosion right here in the Gem State.

Idaho Laugh Festival will be a celebration of comedy in all shapes and sizes. Stand-up, improv, and musical comedy will be among the featured categories showcased during this multi-venue festival.

Idaho Laugh Fest promises a great time for all ages. There will be a variety of show types to cater to anyone who loves laughter.

  • From traditional stand-up showcases in the comedy club, to headlining events at the historical Egyptian Theater, to a family-friendly matinee, and much more.
  • During this two day event, there will also be workshops available to people who want to experience improv or storytelling in a fun and informational environment.

IDAHO HAS LONG SINCE BEEN A PREMIER RECREATION DESTINATION DURING ALL FOUR SEASONS.

Many out of state performers will join forces with some of the best comics Idaho has to offer for a lineup of comedy shows that will put us on the map for an incredible destination for entertainment.
