Description: The creative group Boom Chicago is most famous for live comedy shows...
The creative group Boom Chicago is most famous for live comedy shows. Sharp, quick, and laugh out loud funny, Boom Chicago is fun. A Boom show is a mix of improv comedy, scenes, stand up, music and video. You are seated with your friends around tables and drinking is a part of the show. Afterwards there is music, pinball and parties in Bar 117. A rich past - over the past two decades, Boom Chicago has made locals and visitors laugh with great stage shows, TV programs (Comedy Central News) and viral videos. Boom Chicago has been the laughing pas for wonderful comedians. Boom Alumni write and star in shows like Late Night with Seth Meyers, SNL, The Daily Show, Colbert Report, 30 Rock, Mindy Project and Breaking Bad. Seth Meyers and Jordan Peele were recently featured on the covers of Time Magazine and selected two of 2014's most influential people. Boom Chicago is more than comedy shows. 22 years ago Boom Chicago's founders fell in love with the city, moved here and started the now-famous comedy institution. Boom Chicago's blog Urban Amsterdam (boomchicago[dot]nl/amsterdamblog/) is Boom's essential city guide. It gives visitors to Amsterdam the insider information you need to really get to know the city. Amsterdam is electric and fun to explore and Boom's blog will help you to do just that.

I'm involved in the entertainment industry and have seen hundreds of comedy shows - improv, sketch and stand-up - and the one we saw at Boom Chicago on Saturday 29 August is one of the worst I've experienced. The first half was appalling. We would have left at intermission but we had already paid about 25 euros each and could... More

Just a spur of the moment decision to come see this troupe perform since we were staying close by. Talented kids that played well together. We had a great time and will do again next time we come to Amsterdam.

Very talented artists, friendly staff, comfortable seats. The sound was a tiny bit too loud, but nothing unbearable. We had a tremendous evening.

Funny, original, in good taste. The team worked really well with each other and they all seem to really enjoy themselves. I would definitely go again. Thank you for a fun night.

We took our 17 year old son and 15 year old daughter to the 21 years of mockery show and we all loved it. Great entertainment and a very different way to spend an evening in Amsterdam. A good mix of rehearsed and improvised sketches with suggestions from the audience. Show is in English and actors are American, but you... More

Absolutely hilarious i would highly recommend especially for English speaking tourists as well as native Dutch speakers. Mixture of rehearsed comedy and improvisation, thats really entertaining for the audience. Great bar and you can also pick a pre-theatre dinner that starts around few hours before from various resturants opposite the Theatre (which is delicious, we ate at Mazzo) Actors have... More

Never been to a real standup comedy show before, but Boom Chicago was definitely worth the money. Friendly staff and really skillfull actresses. We went on the show called 21 years of mockery and it was 2 hours of laughing. Of course not all the sketches were fantastic, but i think the ones which interacted the most with the spectators...

I am fortunate to visit Amsterdam every few years and this is my 3rd time seeing a show! Some folks on the stage here are or will be familiar faces from comedy shows etc. Always entertaining - have a beer, coffee and some laughs.

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
Jordaan
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
