ABSOLUTELY the best comedy show I have ever been to

"This is ABSOLUTELY the best comedy show I have ever been to. It’s been a month and I’m still raving about it! Wish you could bring something similar to NZ!"

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!"

Kan ik me niet herinneren

"Uitstekende improvisatie! Groot talent! Leuk om te doen tijdens een bezoek aan Amsterdam. Nam een 13-jarige mee en ze vond het heel gevat!"

Will put a smile on your face

Fantastische ervaring!

"Een topverhaal dat van voor tot achter super in elkaar zit en waar we volledig in op gingen; inclusief ingenieuze trucjes, grappige details, erg mooi decor en de nodige spannende momenten! Echt een aanrader!"

Extremely well done, entertaining and funny

If you always wanted to do improv classes, now is your chance!


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!
