The 90s Will Never Die!
Sitcom, Boom Chicago’s hysterical new comedy show, is a throwback to the 90s when any TV problem could be solved in a half an hour… including the commercials. You know the format: a group of (beautiful) friends hung out in the same locations and got into realistically unrealistic situations. Cameras captured the action and the ‘live studio audience’ knew when to laugh, applause and go ooooh. Boom Chicago celebrates the glory days of the 1990s from which these iconic sitcoms came! Come enjoy the music, fashion and news from a simpler era of Friends, het Zonnetje in Huis and the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. As a finale, each night, together with the audience, the actors will create a brand new Sitcom and shoot a short pilot episode.
In the process, we will try to figure out why these shows have enduring appeal. Is it nostalgia for a simpler time before 9/11? Is it a nice escapism when everything resets each week to how it was? Or do we just lower standards? In any case Sitcom, like its 90s inspirations, will be a lot of fun. #The90sWillNeverDie
