Boom Chicago creates smart and funny comedy shows at our theater on the Rozengracht in Amsterdam. This summer, we also host LIMBO, a fantastic sexy, music-driven circus from Australia. A Boom Chicago comedy show is a fast-paced mix of sharp writing, quick improvisation, video and music. You and your friends enjoy the show from a table with buckets of beer and bottles of wine. Over the last 25 years, more than a million people have seen us live and millions more enjoyed our Comedy Central TV show and viral videos. We have a great venue and are leaders in events and communication. Boom Chicago develops programs for companies and brands to facilitate change, innovation and creativity with humor. Many famous comedians got their start at Boom Chicago including Seth Meyers, Jordan Peele (Get Out, Key and Peele), Ike Barinholtz (Suicide Squad, Mindy Project, Neighbors), Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses, We're the Millers) and Colton Dunn (Superstore). Boom alumni write for shows and movies like Late Night with Seth Meyers, Saturday Night Live, Key and Peele, The Daily Show, Colbert Report, Borderline, 30 Rock, Modern Family, Girls, Mindy Project, Pitch Perfect and Breaking Bad.

A fantastic show - but you've missed it in Amsterdam. Catch it elsewhere if you can. Intense acrobatics, at close range, done with a knowing twinkle. As for Boom Chicago - it's a great venue, with some tip top craft beers.

My husband and I saw LIMBO at Boom Chicago and it was outstanding! Drinks were decently priced, service was good, but most of all the seats were comfortable and the environment was fun!

Hi Cecilia, Thanks for your nice words. I'm glad you enjoyed the show. Concerning the Dutch scene, Boom Chicago is a show for locals so it does have references and news for people who live here. Unusually, this show does have a scene in Dutch...More

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
