Pase la velada riendo en Boom Chicago, en Ámsterdam. Este popular espectáculo cómico de habla inglesa es un desternillante espectáculo con un guión agudo y rápida improvisación con música, vídeo y multimedia. Este grupo de improvisación, que comenzó en 1993, es especialmente conocido por incorporar las sugerencias del público y hacer frente a los problemas del día. Boom Chicago tiene lugar cuatro noches a la semana en el histórico Rozentheater de 250 asientos, ubicado en el famoso barrio Jordaan de Ámsterdam, en el barrio del canal.
It's improv comedy. Improv comedy is always hit or miss. On the night I was there it was mostly miss. I have no doubt that the cast members have all had better moments. I like going to see live performances when traveling abroad and I noticed that this one was in English. Never having been to The Netherlands before I was looking for tours and entertainments in English to help me acclimate to this beautiful city. that's one reason I decided to see this show. No need to worry. I soon found out that everyone in The Netherlands speaks English. Still, I wouldn't either recommend or not recommend this performance. The next night it may have been hysterically funny. Just not the night I was there.
This show was really good but the Trump show was still on which was unexpected as it was supposed to have finished by now. We did enjoy it but Trump bashing isn't our thing. even though we think the guy is an absolute idiot!!!. All in all , well worth doing though.
Easy-to-find location. I thought the show was pretty funny not great but my travel partner thought it was hilarious. Not a big crowd but we were there during the middle of the week in February. Full bar with good service. They had a food menu, too, but I didn't see anyone eating. I heard that if there's not a big crowd you can go to the box office the day of the show and get heavily discounted tickets. Not sure if that's true, but worth a try if you're in the neighborhood.
The artists involved were very clever and masters of their trade. As we went on a weekday, it was not full. I would imagine that on a weekend the atmosphere would be better. First time seeing this kind of show and it was good fun.
