AMSTERDAM COMEDY SHOWS

LIFE IS BETTER WHEN YOU LAUGH

For 30 years, Boom Chicago has been making Amsterdam laugh. Many famous comedians got their start at Boom Chicago like Seth Meyers, Jordan Peele, Amber Ruffin, and the stars and creators of Ted Lasso (Jason Sudeikis, Brendan Hunt and Joe Kelly). Best of all, the next generation of comedy superstars is on stage tonight!

We are most proud of our mainstage shows which feature smart topical scenes, hysterical stand up and our famous improvisation comedy. There are monthly theme nights, and plenty of visiting comedians from all around the world. At Boom Chicago, there are fantastic shows almost every night, with only the occasional stinker. And damn, now the backspace button doesn’t work.

We also teach improvisation! The Boom Chicago Academy has almost 250 active students which makes an exciting Amsterdam comedy community. New Intro to Improv classes start five times a year and we offer improv taser classes almost every week for only €25.

Boom Chicago has been amazing audiences with our comedy for 30 years, and now we’re taking it to the next level. WTF Improv is about people in the audience, inspired by live interviews. Want to be in the show? You can!

Friends since high school, Pep Rosenfeld (SNL) and Greg Shapiro (‘Netherlands Second’ video) are stand ups, improvisers, and hysterical political comedians. As America and the Netherlands both go into a new election, their current events-based comedy shows are even more topical and funny!

Jessica Kirson is a hilariously relatable performer of sheer silliness, vulnerability, and ridiculous characters. Her countless comedic character videos have racked up over 200 million views on social media. Her audience is multigenerational, creating an excuse for large groups of friends and families to spend a night out together.

Join us for an interactive evening for internationals and newcomers about mistakes and lessons that come from those uncomfortable intercultural exchanges. Part stand up comedy, part quiz and part storytelling, Pep Rosenfeld hosts an evening of hilarious bloopers and eye opening insights.

Comedian and actor Drew Lynch captured the hearts of America with his Golden Buzzer performance on Season 10 of America’s Got Talent (NBC), where he finished in second place. Since then, Drew has amassed millions of followers on social media while touring the world nonstop to sold out audiences.

With her fast-paced, provocative stand-up, Grace Campbell is one of the UK’s most talked-about new comedians. She is also a writer and producer, conquering the UK with her sharp tongue and witty humor. She is on a constant mission to challenge and undermine all those in power and existing conventions.
