For something to experience a renaissance or rebirth, you have to assume that it was dead at some point. Comedy in Boise didn't experience either because it didn't die; but it was on life support. Liquid Lounge's serious commitment to the art form revived it at a time when it was at risk of being buried for good. Liquid once again gave chuckle-makers a place to call home and laugh-out-louders something to look forward to. Funny how that works. 405 S. Eighth St., Boise, 208-287-5379, liquidboise com.
