Have you watched all of the good things on Netflix? Is komkommertijd television not ‘scratching that itch’? Luckily, Boom Chicago found new ways to keep these times exciting with top-quality entertainment. We ventured past the walls of Netflix, and into the land of Youtube and Instagram for material to keep you laughing through these unpredictable times. Our hilarious cast compiled lists of videos, films, and comedians that may not have made it on your binge-watching radar yet. If they think it’s funny, it’s gonna be pretty funny.
