Nino Shakes The Room: A live comedy show with Boom Chicago and Nino’s friends. Plus drinking.

Presentator and Ballenjongen author Nino Wilkes hosts an exciting and groundbreaking series of live comedy shows at Boom Chicago this year. Working with Boom Chicago’s very funny mainstage cast, Nino invites a different (famous) friend each month for a hysterical celebration of his rich life. Plus drinking. 

Being the grandson of soccer royalty Faas Wilkes and part of the Kluivert family full of soccer stars,  his unbelievable world of voetbal and other adventures will be the subject of the shows. He, his guest, and the Boom Chicago actors, musicians and technicians will turn those original stories into scenes, characters and yes even songs. Did we mention drinking?!

Nino Shakes the Room premieres at the Boom Chicago Comedy Festival on July 15. Gather your friends for an evening of high level of comedy! Starring Stacey Smith, Matt Castellvi, Katie Nixon, Andy McCammon, Simon Lukacs and Raquel Palmas. Music: Sacha Hoedemaker. Lights, video and tech: Emil Struijker-Boudier.
