We look forward to seeing you at the Boom Chicago Comedy Festival!
As a seated theater, the latest rules about massive music festivals don’t apply, except that the bar will close at midnight. Get enough drinks for the quiz and bring them in the theater.
‘The show must go on,’ but seated at 75% capacity. Guests need a photo ID and access through The Dutch Government’s Corona Check App. Guests can be fully vaccinated, have had corona, or have taken a sneltest. For the late planners, we do free, GGD-accredited rapid antigen tests on site from 15:00 – 21:00 with no reservation. Why not see a show before the quiz at 21:30 or 22:00? What a good idea!
We kijken er naar uit om je te ontvangen op het Boom Chicago Comedy Festival!
Als theater met vaste zitplaatsen zijn de recente regels voor muziekfestivals niet van toepassing, behalve dat de bar om middernacht gesloten zal zijn. Haal genoeg drankjes voor jouw gezelschap bij de bar voor die tijd en neem ze mee de zaal in voor de quiz.
‘The show must go on,’ maar wel met een aangepaste capaciteit van 75% van de normale bezetting. Bezoekers hebben een Identiteitsbewijs nodig en toegang va de Corona Check App. Bezoekers worden toegelaten met volledige vaccinatie, met bewijs dat ze Corona hebben gehad of met een sneltest. Voor de spontane bezoeker zijn er gratis GGD geaccrediteerde antigen sneltesten beschikbaar bij Boom Chicago op de locatie tussen 15:00 en 21:00 zonder reservering. En waarom dan niet een leuke comedyshow bijwonen voorafgaand aan de quiz om 21:30 of 22:00? Wat een goed idee!
Hey Nederlanders! Which celebrity is officially NOT a virologist? What was the name of the documentary about Britney Spears that Ivo Niehe starred in? You’ll get the answer to these and many more questions in De Speld Newsquiz. After several online editions, with thousands of participants, the famous satirical website premieres their first in-person quiz at the Boom Chicago Comedy Festival.
Host Michiel Eijsbouts takes you on a midnight journey filled with wonder and roaring laughter. Drinking makes you smarter, so don’t be left behind! The quiz, like all the world’s best comedy, is in Dutch.
- The main location is at Boom Chicago at Rozengracht 117 in Amsterdam.
- Shows on Wed through Saturday (July 24 through 31) are at Boom Chicago on the Rozengracht.
- Sunday evening’s (Digital Program) shows (August 1) are at The Student Hotel at the Wibautsstraat location. These shows are performed live at the Student Hotel and broadcast to ticket holders around the world watching online. Your ticket is for the in-person audience (the best experience). It does not include a digital viewing online ticket.
We will follow all health and safety rules in effect at that time.
We are expecting that by the end of July, with vaccines, better testing and less Corona, we will be able to have a regular, in-person festival with small modifications.
Perhaps it will still be smart to wear masks indoors. Perhaps the capacity will be lower. Perhaps we will administer a test or ask to see your status on an app. We will see as the date approaches, what procedures will be in place, but we expect the show to go on!
If for some reason, the festival does not go on, we will first offer Boom Chicago gift certificates and our thanks for your understanding. We will refund tickets for those who want their money back.
