If you are bored of going to dance clubs and coffee shops :P you can spend a different night at Leidseplein Theatre. The night starts early (at 18:00) and you can have your dinner there.
The ticket per person for Boomchicago Shows are in general 17 Euros. I don't remember whether the drinks were included or not. (I have justified reason: I was in Amsterdam, come oooonn!)
I have been to an improvised show which made everything funnier for the audiance.
The show is in English. The theatre has a capacity of around 300 people. So try to have a seat near the stage (which is dangerous as well because the comedians do not leave you alone he he he).
How to reach there (from their internet site):
By tram: Take number 1, 2, 5, 6, 7 or 10 to the Leidseplein.
R.I.P. Circle Tram 20.
By train: From Amsterdam Centraal Station,
take tram 1, 2 or 5 to the Leidseplein.
After the show, train back to Utrecht frequently until 1:17am.
Then every hour leaving Amsterdam CS at :17 after the hour.
Train back to den Haag and Rotterdam often until 12:43am.
Then every hour leaving Amsterdam CS at :43 after the hour.

By bike: Bike to the Leidseplein. Lock bike nearby. See show. Replace stolen bike.
By foot: Walk to the Leidseplein. Wipe feet on mat. Clean shoe grooves with sticks. Enter theater.
By car: Park at Q-Park (Tesselschadestraat 1) between the Marriott and Vondelpark. From there, walk to the Leidseplein.
Dress Code: No special dress code. However most of the clubs do not accept people with slippers (of course).
The Boom Chicago shows at Leidseplein are worth visiting. They're stand-up comedian shows that give you an American perspective on Dutch society. Shows run daily, and you can have dinner before the show. Dinners are ok but not special.
12 euro pitchers of beer are a good deal.
Dress Code: Casual is fine.
Boom Chicago. Kinda' like a dinner theater. The theater portion is a semi-improvisational group comedy thing.
It's in English but attracts a local and international crowd. They have a couple different 'themed' shows. check their schedule.
BTW, I'm told this is the only place you can buy pitchers of beer in A'dam (from my experience this is true).
Dress Code: Casual dress is fine.
''-Boom Chicago demands both the actors and the audience think on their feet. Information from the crowd shapes the show for a fast-paced improvisation comedy thrill ride. With music and concert lighting, the show is unexpected and exciting.
Meet at the boomBar for cocktails on the Leidseplein and then join us for dinner before the show. Most people come for a delicious meal before the show. Our chef creates ecclectic seasonal menus and our cooks make everything fresh in our kitchen, except maybe the ketchup and mayonnaise.-''
This was the last night of the tour I was on. Our whole group went to a place called Boom Chicago. It was not very Dutch (as you can tell by the name) - improv comedy show and really good food! We had a blast and laughed a lot!
There's a good stand up comedian show on the Leidseplein called Boom Chicago. It's all in English. The late night show on Friday nights are all improvisations and tickets are not expensive!
Very funny! A lot of funny jokes about Amsterdam too.
Boom Chicago housed in the small Leidsepleintheater (300 seats) brings comedy and funny shows in English.
The audience is seated around tables, and people eat and drink as well.
