Amsterdam’s Saturday Night Improv Comedy Show

Boom Chicago’s late night show is the best way to start your Saturday night out. After the first show, The Future is Here… And it is Slightly Annoying, Boom’s cast and special guests turn into comedy bartenders to create delicious shots for you! Shot of Improv is Boom Chicago’s fully improvised comedy show, and it’s different every time, so you can come to every show and enjoy something new.

You decide how crazy the show gets, and to keep the craziness going, we offer a free shot for a good suggestion! This is a full two-act show with intermission — 90 minutes of quick thinking and big laughs, and then it’s all gone. Come see what the best improv comedians in Amsterdam can do!

The entire Boom Chicago cast performs and is in a party mood. You sit over here. We sit over there. You’re drinking. We’re drinking. You’re paying for your drinks. We’re not!

This improv comedy show is entirely in English. The starting time is 22:30, and the show lasts one hour and 45 minutes, including intermission.

On Saturday May 25, we’ll have two special guests from The Free Association London at our Shot of Improv show.  Longtime FA members Ian Thomas and Freddie Sandilands will join our cast on stage for a unique evening. Book your tickets for Shot of Improv with FA special guests.


Freddie trained in improv at both Monkey Toast and the FA and is a founding member of improv group The Petting Zoo. A writer and comic performer, he has performed on the London stand up circuit and this year will see him take his first character comedy show to the Edinburgh fringe.


Ian moved to London from Canada in the winter of 2013.  The fact that he is from Canada is probably the first thing he will tell you if you ever meet.  The second thing he might bring up is that he’s been performing in a variety of ways for many years but only been doing this improv thing for two.  Upon getting off stage after his first Harold show he realized he probably should have started doing it 10 years ago cause he loves it. This would be the third thing he might tell you. The fourth thing Ian might tell you is to watch the film Wet Hot American Summer, if only just for the scene where Christopher Meloni talks to a can of mixed vegetables voiced by Jon Benjamin.
