  • Amsterdam: The Famous Boom Chicago Comedy Show

    1. Amsterdam: The Famous Boom Chicago Comedy Show

    Boom Chicago creates smart and funny comedy shows at their theater complex on the Rozengracht in Amsterdam. A Boom Chicago show is a fast-paced mix of sharp writing, quick improvisation, video and music. The theater has a full bar and drinking during the show is part of the fun. In the main theater, there is a drink service at your tables. Before and after the show enjoy modern pinball machines and classic arcade games. Over the last 25 years, more than a million people have seen Boom Chicago perform live, and they have launched the careers of many famous comedians like Seth Meyers, Jordan Peele, Ike Barinholtz and Kay Cannon. See the next generation on stage at Boom Chicago.

    We liked it a lot. American English is sometimes a bit hard (and we speak English quite well also the teens) Nice surprise extra after show. The children liked it a lot -for me the topics were a bit obvious - drugs and girls :) I think it is my age:)

    We were looking for something different to do in Amsterdam and came across this magic show. I was a little sceptical as I had a bad image of magicians in my mind, either cheesy male models or boring and old-fashioned. It was AMAZING! There were 3 close-up magicians before the show performing little 30 second pieces of magic in front of your nose that was honestly mindblowing. So even before the stage show started we were having a fantastic time! And the free glass of champagne of course helped! Then the stage show started, there were 6 different magicians on stage, each doing 10 or 15 minutes. So you never get bored! All the acts were so different and unique that it really is a delight for your senses. We got to meet all the magicians, most of which are European champions and celebrities in the magic world. Then after the show there was this party atmosphere, everybody got a drink and the magicians started doing all their newest acts for us. It really was an unforgettable night!

Wonderfully entertaining comedy review. Clever, insightful and funny. I would put this on the can't miss it list of all English speaking visitors to Amsterdam. It is comparable to Chicago's Second City and The TV show Saturday Night Live.

Very clever comedy, interaction with the audience wasn’t over used and some fab sketches along with drinks and snacks! Will definitely be visiting again!

Surprising, funny show with an interesting basic theme. By calling the terms, on request, the show is organized spontaneously and unexpectedly.

One of the best comedy nights I’ve ever been too. We really enjoyed it !!

Super evening, the troop is really pro and know how to fly.
