Boom Chicago: Life is Better When You Laugh

Who couldn’t use a bit more laughter in their studies?


Boom Chicago, located in the heart of Amsterdam’s Jordaan, is known for its weekly comedy shows and top-tier improvisation courses. Home to a spectrum of performances and events, Boom Chicago is more than simply a comedy theater, as several pillars of the company hugely expand the range of experiences you may expect.

The comedy shows range from political and perfectly-tailored, to outrageous and completely improvised. And, they care about students! Or at least their wallets. Or their parents’ wallets? Buy your student ticket for any of the shows and enjoy paying less and laughing more!

The best thing about this comedy theater?

Gain confidence, make friends, become funnier, smarter and
more attractive!

While improvisation and comedy are often the main focus of the curriculum, Boom Chicago
emphasizes the importance of public-speaking through performance and presentation. From speaking skills to body language, instructors at Boom Chicago intertwine comedy into lessons that will give you skills for a lifetime.
