Sunday Night Live
In 1993, Boom Chicago brought improvisation to Amsterdam. Now, almost 25 years later, we take it to the next level: long form improvisation. With long form improv, the Boom Chicago cast creates new scenes, stories and songs inspired by a monologue or a suggestion — and each other. The comedy unfolds more patiently as the improvised threads weave themselves into something unique, surprising and always funny. Sunday Night Live is intended for improv fans and lovers, but beware: since each show is totally different, anyone who sees it may find it habit forming….
Sundays at Boom Chicago will have a different vibe from the rest of the week. While the normal Boom Chicago show is lightning fast and full of technical tricks, Sunday Night Live takes it easy. More laid back, more relaxed and a bit more involving. You watch each improv move and understand what inspired it — and see how it inspires the next.
Each Sunday Night Live show is truly one of a kind in a way even our other shows aren’t. These longer stories, scenes and songs are not just inspired by suggestions but by each other. That means that even if the starting line is the same, the show will go in places that previous shows have just never gone. When the show is over, that story and those characters are gone forever. The audience has watched the creation and performance of a comedy play that only has one performance. Ever.
