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.
