Life is better when you laugh! Real couple Matt Castellvi and Stacey Smith (and real Boom Chicago cast members) perform their real funny improvised comedy show about life, love and anything that comes up. Spend three funny nights with two great performers, one musical improv master, a tiny crew and no audience.

Enjoy emotional intimacy with social distancing as everyone stays 1,5m apart. Everyone except Matt and Stacey who will make you laugh as they get close, sit on each other’s laps and touch each other’s faces. It’s allowed. They’re a couple!

Musical Director Sacha Hoedemaker accompanies live from the side of the stage and supports scenes with live music. Together the three create improvised show stoppers. But this is not a three-way. He will stay 1,5m away.

Please join us for a very special Boom Chicago show, based on audience suggestions. If it’s not funny, it’s your fault. Support the performers, make a donation now!
