The 3rd Annual Idaho Laugh Fest featuring Women Ignite Idaho, Aaron Woodall, Mike Wood, Brian Havig, Chris George, Recycled Minds, Serious Shenanigans and Insert Foot Theatre. Had a blast and got a work out from laughing so hard! Thanks to all the comics that came out and shared their heart and talent with us!
What a GREAT way to start the 3rd Annual Idaho Laugh Fest right at our home venue, The HUB! We are so thankful to Megan Bryant and our sponsors for putting this on. We had a blast with Women Ignite Idaho and their variety show along with Aaron Woodall for the 7pm show. And, at 9pm, we had lots of mystery and hilarity from Mike Wood "The Capapult," Brian Havig, Chris George and of course, yours truly, Recycled Minds. Don't miss the next two shows, Saturday 7pm and 9pm. Come ready to work out those abs laughing so hard!
A BIG thank you to First Baptist Church for allowing us to use the HUB as our family-friendly venue this weekend. We could not do it without your generosity and support!
What an amazing privilege it was to host the 3rd Annual Idaho Potato Drop this year! We had so much with bands like Blue Lotus, Mike Hopper and the Roman Candles, Jupiter Holiday and Bread and Circus! The audience was bringing in the New Year with laughter and boldness as we played games like Parents vs. Kids Trivia, Flip Cup, Lip Sync Battles, Battle of the Sexes and of course, the Bachelorette Dating Game! Looking forward to a bright and beautiful 2016! Happy New Year everybody!
The Recycled Minds Christmas Show was a night that embodied the Christmas Spirit of generosity, joy, thanksgiving and family. It started with the very talented Megan Bryant, creator of Idaho Laugh Fest, in her original sketch as Elf on the Shelf. She stole each of our hearts with her quirky facial expressions, perspective as the elf and Hersey "droppings!" Joining us on the stage were Drew and Ivan from Utah who always make us laugh and blew us away with "Sing It."
Perhaps the most classic Christmas portion was the beautiful music and audience participation from Quinn and Shirley Van Paepeghem. We were also blessed to have Manna Hancock on piano who accompanied Sean in his story of a Christmas memory.
Thanks to all who shared their talents with us and our audience who graced us with their laughter and joyful presence! We so appreciate you and look forward to more Christmas shows in the future!

Up Front Theater's Peter Comedy Trio (PTR) had one heck of a fun-filled weekend in Boise, finishing up their west coast tour.
There is a small but growing pool of talented improvisers in Boise Idaho, and some of them including Recycled MInds (RM) & Insert Foot jumped at the chance to play with them in a lively and wildly entertaining improvised comedy show. Nov 20th RM lead by Sean Hancock, (Owner and Artistic Director of RM) hosted the evening. "What an amazing time! It was a TOTAL JOY to have these guys! It was the best long form improv I've seen since I've left LA" says Sean, Friday night after the show,"Their interaction and the way they played off each other was inspiring. I think all of us could appreciate the way they took their time, and let the scene be unearthed." The Improv comedy show at The Hub in downtown Boise showcased Insert Foot Theatre, RM and PTR along with a workshop and Improv Jam Saturday night that allowed novice to advanced improvisers to play with PTR. They left improv fans feeling thankful, delighted and a bit blessed.
"Thank you Peter for sharing you talent, hearts and the stage with us. You are welcome to join us in Boise anytime! All the best to you on your future endeavors! " - Sean & his wife Colleen Hancock
Recycled Minds hosted a live concert Thursday, Oct. 22nd with Pete Mitchell of No More Kings featuring Boise's own Interstate and Lone Tree River. We pulled out the couches and made it a private show feel! We had a small, but mighty crowd and the music couldn't have been better! Sorry, if you missed out! Check out more of No More Kings, Interstate and Lone Tree River below!
Friday, Oct. 23rd was a show to remember all year! Imagine live zombies in the courtyard, a broken down Jeep, fog, dangerously good treats like cake pops and popcorn, live music and hilarious comedy all in one evening! It was EPIC! We had floating candles above the audience like in Harry Potter and transformed the lobby into a magical, haunted house. The show was a hilarious combination of spooky themes, games, videos and a guest performance from Professor Moody, Sean's puppet! Congrats to Kayla for her birthday and winning the costume contest!
Thanks to Trevor for jumping up on stage in a moments notice and rocking it on the keys to Pete's songs. You are so talented and we love you! Thank you, Pete for giving of your time and talent to share with us and a thanks to Interstate for accompanying him and learning his music! Thank you Lone Tree River for sharing your talents with us as well!
Recycled Minds partnered with CATCH (Charitable Assistance to the Community's Homeless) to raise money in the effort to end homelessness. The night was hosted by Cory and Jeni from Kissn' 92.3 (Jeni also did magic) and featured Local Stand-up Comedians Mikey Pullman and Brett Badostain. Thank you to all who came out! We raised over $1100! Keep on the lookout for more of these events in the future!

One of the best summer improv series in Boise yet! Troupes from around the Valley performed at Liquid Laughs, Boise's #1 comedy club. The last show was a ton of fun as the Audience's All Star Players from each group performed together to create one hilarious, off-the-cuff show. This was the first time they performed with each other and it won't be the last if we can help it! Keep a heads up for more of these fun events!
