For the fourth time Boom Chicago will host the event for Democrats Abroad on Election Night. Start your evening with Pep and Greg’s new political show. Celebrate the end of the Trump era!
CELEBRATING OVER 25 YEARS OF COMEDY
In 1993, Andrew Moskos and Pep Rosenfeld fell in love with Amsterdam and moved here to start a sketch and improv comedy show with their Dutch partner Saskia Maas.
25 plus years later, Boom Chicago has grown into the innovative and influential comedy institution it is today. We have made more than a million people laugh at our stages (and hosted a few sourpusses as well).
Many famous American comedians began their careers at Boom Chicago, including Seth Meyers, Jordan Peele, Ike Barinholtz, and Kay Cannon. Boom alumni fill the writing staffs at Saturday Night Live, The Daily Show, and many other successful TV programs. Best of all, the next generation of superstars is on our stage tonight! Come enjoy a hilarious night of improv with us.
WE ARE OPEN!
(Updated October 23)
The show must go on! Boom Chicago continues but with a smaller capacity. See below for our complete corona procedures. We are very proud of them as they allow us to be open safely while still keeping the exciting Boom Chicago feeling.
Due to Corona restrictions, our bar is temporarily closed.
Good news: You are allowed to bring your 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! The Roos Mini Market next door has a good selection of (cold) beer, wine and soft drinks. They are open until 20:00. 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.
If you would like to reschedule your tickets, we are happy to give you a gift card for shows in the future over the next year. We are not offering cash refunds if the show is not cancelled. If a show is cancelled by us or by upcoming government restrictions, we do offer the possibility of a cash refund. We think this is a fair policy and we hope you appreciate our logic.
Check our calendar to see what’s on. We will contact ticket holders of any cancelled shows if that happens. For requests regarding your reservations, please contact us by email at [email protected]
We hope to see you and your friends soon!
