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!
BOOM CHICAGO (DRINKING) UPDATE
The show must go on! Boom Chicago continues in January, with a smaller capacity and our anti-Covid procedures. We will usually perform two shows on a night to accommodate more audience. Most shows are now 75 minutes with no intermission.
Bad news: Due to Corona restrictions, our bar is temporarily closed.
Good news: You are allowed to bring in (store bought) drinks! We will provide water, glasses, ice, and coolers and will also clean things up afterwards. This is as close as you will get to a bar over the next few weeks! You are allowed to enter Boom Chicago until 20:00 with your drinks.
We are charging a ‘good news surcharge’ of five euros per person to help offset the losses of lower capacities during these restrictions. Thank you in advance for your support of the arts.
Book with confidence! If you ever book a show that has to be cancelled, we will always reluctantly refund your money with a forced smile. We guarantee it! But maybe a Patron of the Arts like you would rather receive a gift card?
Shot of Improv is Boom Chicago’s fully improvised comedy show in English. Enjoy 75 minutes of improv comedy, the best way to start your lockdown free life! One time only on February 11!
