A home to English-language comedy in Amsterdam

Boom Chicago has been on the go for more than 20 years, providing a steady home to English-language comedy in Amsterdam. As well as hosting a series of homegrown comedy and improv shows throughout the week, the theatre also plays host to solo stand-up shows from the UK, US and beyond. Although the comedy troupe's roots stem from their former comedy theatre on Leidseplein (now the Chicago Social Club), at their present home on the Rozengracht the group have more space to experiment and entertain. As such, as well as live shows, workshops and coaching sessions, you'll find all sorts of interesting concepts taking place, from haunted houses to escape rooms.
