For the last three years, 208 Comedy Fest has brought a diverse array of nationally renowned comics to elevate the quality of comedy in the Treasure Valley. Thursday-Sunday, more than 60 comics will perform at six venues across downtown Boise. Co-founder Dylan Hass and Emma Arnold tell us what makes the festival unique in a small — but growing — comedy scene.
