General Admission

Tragedy + Time = Comedy

The subject of much comedy is tragic, but not too soon or people won’t be ready. You can even make a mathematical formula about it. Steve Allen, the first host of The Tonight Show famously explained: “Tragedy plus time equals comedy.”

Join our cast and special guests of Boom Chicago as they create laughter from tragedy, hilarity from tension and genuine glee from astonishing stories!

They will share their most personal experiences, and then mine them for comic inspiration and present an entire show of improvised sketches and characters plucked from dark themes.

For Dutch people who like leedvermaak (which is all of you), or anyone who can appreciate schadenfreude, this is your chance to laugh proudly at other people’s misfortune. Don’t worry. It’s OK!
