Jordaan, Amsterdam –
Boom Chicago is a comedy theater where fifty percent of the show is improvised, one hundred percent is hilarious, and patrons are guaranteed to laugh out loud for the entire two-hour performance.
Giving away any part of the act would be a disservice, so spectators should just go with an open mind and prepare to be entertained – or even to end up as part of the show.
Although Boom Chicago has been around since 1993, its constantly evolving acts and fresh outlook have secured its place as one of the most popular shows in town.
The good times keep rolling even after the show, when the bar area hosts a number of events from club nights to beer pong to pub quizzes.
While Boom Chicago does attract its share of tourists, the shows and the signature frozen margaritas are well worth the time.
Awesome show! Call or go online to book a seat in advance, or stop by the theater to see if you can get a deal. Take your creativity to the show with you – you’ll be rewarded with free beer if the performers use your suggestions! And if you save your ticket stub, you can go back the next night for only €5.
International crowd of all ages, from traveling families to locals to random couples reeled in by the street team.
Nightly performances. Check the website for a schedule of events.
Drink specials change nightly. Happy Hour Sa 9:45 – 10:30pm.
For the best deals, get a discount flyer from the street team in front of the theater or visit the nearby Last Minute Ticket Shop for same day, half-price tickets. Patrons can also save €5 off their ticket by grabbing a copy of Boom Magazine outside the theater.
Tickets €20 Su–Th or €24 F–Sa. Beer €2.60, mixed drinks €7.50, soda, coffee, tea €2.50.
Check out Bar Struik (Rozengracht 160) before or after the show where the vibe is more chill and artistic, and with DJs spinning everything from soul and afro beat to college radio rock.
