LIFE IS BETTER WHEN YOU LAUGH
Boom Chicago is the best night out in Amsterdam. For 29 years, their comedy shows have been making locals and visitors laugh (in English) from their comedy temple on the Rozengracht in the city center.
They host visiting comedians and great stand up nights in their three theaters, but the main event is a Boom Chicago comedy show. These are a fast-paced mix of sharp writing, quick improvisation, and live music created by their main stage cast. Sit at tables while you enjoy a full bar with great drinks including (local) beers, fantastic wine and mixed cocktails.
Many famous comedians got their start at Boom Chicago including Seth Meyers, Jordan Peele, the creators and stars of Ted Lasso (Jason Sudeikis, Brendan Hunt and Joe Kelly), Ike Barinholtz, Amber Ruffin, Kay Cannon and many more. The next generation is onstage tonight!
