Best Local Comedian/Comedy Act

1st Place: BareBones Improv
2nd Place: Memorial High School Improv
3rd Place: Larry Heagle

Eau Claire has always had a treasure trove of funny people, and this year it’s been taken up a notch by consistently hilarious shows by the dynamic BareBones Improv group, including John Shenk, Ben Richgruber, and relative (though brilliant) newcomers to the line-up, Amber Dernbach and Shane Leonard. (Original founding members Tom Giffey & Nick Meyer are currently semi-retired). The group has recently featured accompanying keys by Laarks frontman Ian Jacoby as well. It fits that they’re followed by the seriously good Memorial Improv Team, and the musical comedy of Larry Heagle. – Jesse Johnson
