We booked seats and a bottle of a wine for this comedy show but were left disappointed. The theatre was more like a school show with little chairs in rows and a slightly raised stage area. Not how we expected with cosy sofas in most...More

Very impressed by the cast of 6 who did the improve show. Theatre is JUST the right size (I'd say about 65 people?) and easy to get to via tram. Good value for money on show tickets and drinks too. Definitely worth a visit!

There are some good reviews about Boom Chicago and some bad reviews. I want to be fair, but balanced. We went to the Sunday Night Improvisation show. There were about 50-70 people present. Unfortunately, the venue has the feel of a student bar, rather than...More

Great place with nice idea of drinking and experiencing comedy at the same time! FaceTime your fears were a funny show with interaction with audience. We liked it!

A very interesting place to go in Amsterdam. It's like an improv theater with a venue along the lines of "Whose Line Is It Anyway/".

I went here with my colleagues for the show FaceTime your Fears. We had all great hopes for this show, but unfortunately it wasn't as fun as we hoped it to be. It felt scripted and almost no one there really laughed at those jokes....More

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
