Best Local Comedy Group

1st Place: Glassworks Improv
2nd Place: BareBones Improv Lab
3rd Place: The Backwards Thinkers Society


Eau Claire’s burgeoning comedy and standup scenes have grown in leaps and bounds over the past year, but the same two groups remain at the top of this category. The Glassworks Improv team is known for its long-form style of improv, which can feature a number of different scenarios, setting, and characters all within the same fast-paced performance. And while this trio calls Eau Claire home, it has brought its unique brand of comedy to both the East and West coasts. The local short-form improv veterans of the BareBones Improv Lab have been favorites around town with their semi-regular and seriously funny House of Rock shows, and in third, UW-Eau Claire’s Backwards Thinkers Society makes its deserved debut in this poll. –Paul Brandt
