16 Nov Lock Up Your Husbands: Comedian Vicki Barbolak is Coming to The Balcony

Side gigs are the cars of the new millennium: Everybody seems to have one, and comedian Vicki Barbolak is no exception. She’s a stellar comedian—she was a finalist in the last season of America’s Got Talent—but she’s also an ordained minister who officiates weddings, anniversaries and vow renewal ceremonies from her van, Wedding Chapel to Go.
The service has received high marks for Barbolak’s professionalism and (surprise) good humor, but the enterprise is tinged with a kind of irony, in that by her own estimation, she has burned through so many husbands she has a punch card at the local wedding cake bakery and enough monogrammed hand towels to spell out passive-aggressive messages to her current beau.
Barbolak is the funniest mom in America, a devotee of the Southern California trailer park lifestyle, the mentee of The Comedy Store Founder Mitzi Shore and a member of Jay Leno’s NBC Comedy Squad. On her Trailer Nasty tour, she’ll cruise through Boise on Wednesday, Nov. 14, and stop at The Balcony Club. That’s where she’ll share the stage with comedian Matt Bragg and the host for the evening, none other than Boise Weekly advice columnist Minerva Jayne.
The show starts at 8 p.m., and tickets are $20-$22 for general admission, and $39-$43 for the full VIP treatment, which includes a meet-and-greet and choice seating.
