BANGO!

Introducing Bango! New Form Improv with a Beat

In 2018, Boom Chicago turns 25 years old and we are still innovating! Andrew Moskos, the director of 7 Deadly Dutch Sins, Trump up the Volume and 9/11 Forever, presents Bango!, a brand new comedy show and a brand new comedy style: New Form Improv. This new show takes fewer suggestions from the audience and moves past the familiar structure of improv games. Freed from the rules, our talented cast responds at even higher speeds with rich characters, stories and scenes for a fresh, fun and exciting comedy show.

Bango! is different each night. The show is based on true stories told by the actors, audience members and special guest stars which are never repeated. The musical energy comes from Sacha Hoedemaker who provides studio production, live music and funky drums. The cast adds lyrics to tell some stories musically.

This improv comedy show is entirely in English. The show lasts around 2 hours, including intermission. The show starts at 20:30 Wednesdays to Fridays. On Saturdays, the show starts at 20:00.
