From the start the room laughing

"From the moment the MC jumped on stage he had the room laughing. It was an excellent vibe, with awesome audience participation and I sincerely laughed A LOT. Oh, and this was the English show - so very diverse audience. Highly recommend it for a night out!"

OVER 25 YEARS OF COMEDY

In 1993, funny childhood friends fell in love with Amsterdam and moved here to start a sketch and improv comedy show.

25 plus years later, Boom Chicago has grown into the innovative and influential comedy institution it is today. With two theaters and shows almost every night, we have made millions of people laugh  (and hosted a few sourpusses as well).

Many comedians began their careers here including Seth Meyers, Jordan Peele, Amber Ruffin, Ike Barinholtz, Jason Sudeikis and Kay Cannon. Boom alumni fill the writing staffs at Saturday Night Live and many successful TV programs. Best of all, the next generation of superstars is onstage tonight!
