Boom Chicago at the Leidseplein Theatre is not a "quiet evening out" - expect to participate in the riotous activities of the performers (and be videoed doing it!!!!) It is hilarious (when it's happening to someone else hahahahah!) You should pre-book your tickets as it gets completely packed. We booked for "Rock Stars" Friday Late Nite (doors open 23.00pm) and paid 17.50E.

Dress Code: Anything
Boom Chicago is an Amsterdam institution that performs all over the world. Our comedy shows mix good writing, quick thinking and high production values. We also create tailored performances for corporate events and special events.
Most people see us at the 300-seat Leidseplein Theater, where we perform (almost) every night. Come early for a great dinner and enjoy our full bars with shaken cocktails
I didn't really know what to expect of this show but I'm so glad I went. This is a very talented group of Improv Comedians who know how to entertain. Most of this show is hilarious! And, as expected, there is a lot of "Bush Bashing" involved. Loved it!
BTW, visiting a Coffeeshop ahead of time could help heighten it's entertainment value. But hey, you didn't hear that from me!
Dress Code: It's your typical Comedy Bar set up and atmosphere. Wear what you like.
Boom Chicago is a must see. A group of 10 Americans set up an Improv troop in the Leidseplein. Great show, plays to all three types in audiance (Americans, Europeans, and the Dutch). Food is absolutely fantastic. Buy tickets ahead of time
Sooooo Funny!!! Full of tourists mostly American and English, but also some locals. It was hilarious. Its a comedy club that was started some years ago by Americans. Be sure you can laugh at yourself and others, its comedy! The more time you spend in NL the funnier the show is because it comments on a lot of cultural differences. Its like a mix of SNL and who's line.
A little spendy with tickets around 20euro, plus drinks, but worth if you need some laughs and a something a little different to do in Amsterdam.
Han & I are always on the look out for different things to do in Amsterdam, and as we both enjoy comedy we thought we'd try Boom Chicago comedy club as it is in English.
To be honest I can't say that I found it very amusing although parts of the show were alright. It is quite American in feel and most of the acts that evening were bourne out of improvisation using the audience ideas.
I felt the tickets were rather pricey between Euro 19.50 & Euro 23.50, drinks were served at your table throughout the show.
Dress Code: casual
this is a must see.the place called BOOM CHICAGO,and you can find it on the leidseplien square.
its a comedy show (improv)and a damn funny one at that. the actors take suggestions from the crowd and turn them into something very funny,the food is also very good and cheap.i tell you if your looking for a night of fun,laughter good food and beer go here.
you wont be dissapointed(a very funny night out)and is all in english.they also have a very chilled out bar area with a good mix of people this is for old and new folk,i took my father there hes 63 years old and i have never seen him laugh so much..so go and see it.
i advise you to take advantage of the meal deal here also,you get a choice two course meal and then get to see the show with the best views but get there before six o clock
Dress Code: anything go's,dress as you like.
Boom Chicago is a funny, impormptu, comedy show by a group of Americans living in Amsterdam.
The funny part is that most of their stuff is unrehearsed, and they make it up on spot.
You can sit down and eat and drink and have a good laugh, most shows start at 7:30
Book in advance (esp if you're a big party)
Dress Code: Casual
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.
