  • Really brilliant. Highly recommend the Improv. Talented comedians. Will definitely go again when next in Amsterdam  more »
  • I went to the Shot of Improv show. As a university student that watches a lot of English movies and youtube and deems herself fluent in English, I was suprised that I wasn't able to understand all of....  more »
  • The boom cast is so very great, they’re incredibly talented and going to watch them do improv is always a good idea. I watched tragedy plus time and cried and laughed so much. Thank you cast!!  more »
  • Great venue, where we got to see the fantastic quick and hilarious English language improv show. If you get the chance don't miss this, it's a great night out. A mixture of surreal, silly and serious, with great audience participation moments. I will never forget the fashionable badger song 🙂
  • Good, fun and something interesting to do in the evening. You can buy drinks at the bar or you can purchase during the show if you wish. You need to book over the phone or you can book on the evening after 6pm at the box office. Prices varies and you can find discounts throughout Amsterdam with the local tourist passes you can purchase. Depends on the acts which are on, however the ones on the evening we had seen done a very good job so I would recommend.
  • Nice place to look out for stand-up comedy, musical events etc. Entrance is small and can be crowded easily. The seating is good and can accommodate around few hundred people.
  • Boom Chicago hosts absolutely hilarious shows! The wonderful owners and staff are super friendly and every show I have been to has been amazing. Been to their show called 'Bango' which is basically story telling and testing the skills of the actors in the most hilarious way possible. The structure may be the same but trust me the stories are always unique. The hall is perfect size, not big nor small, good seating arrangements. During the show you can order drinks as well. The location is easy to find and walkable distance from Dam square but also very easy to access via trams.
  • Two gigs going on the night I visited. Big hall and smaller 100 seater or so hall upstairs. Small hall had great atmosphere but bar up there was closed. Main atrium is undergoing renovations so was not a great place to spend time, hopefully when the work finishes it'll be a fun place to have a few drinks.
