Todd Barry 

Thursday, Sept. 17, Liquid

This space is exclusively for music previews... usually. For this edition of Boise Weekly, however, we're allocating these column inches to comedy--specifically, comedian Todd Barry.

This wasn't an arbitrary decision: Barry is well-known for his one-episode role as overbearing bongo player Todd Barry on hit HBO show Flight of the Conchords. Barry's percussion prowess may have been what led us to put him on this page, but it's his innovative, engaging comedy that has put him in the passenger seat for an episode of Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. It's what brought Louis C.K. to produce Todd Barry: The Crowd Work Tour DVD and then sell it on his website ( It's what gets him invited to do spots on late-night, voice animated characters, appear in TV shows and play clubs around the country.

Ultimately, what Barry's ability to craft an awesome joke and work a crowd should do, is put you in a seat for his one-night only Boise performance on Thursday, Sept. 17 at Liquid.
