Boom Chicago is an international creative group, based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, that writes and performs sketch and improvisational comedy at the Rozentheater.[1]

The group was founded in 1993 by Americans Andrew Moskos, Pep Rosenfeld and Ken Schaefle, who named it after their hometown and the home of improvisation. In 1994, they moved from the Iboya on the Korte Leidsedwarsstraat to the Lijnbaansgracht in the space that later became the Sugar Factory and Lovelee. In 1998, they took over and restored the Leidseplein Theater in the city's theater and club district. In 2012, the comedy show moved to their more spacious home on the Rozengracht, while the Chicago Social Club remains at the Leidseplein.

Today the group performs their own shows or hosts outside productions at the Rozentheater. The venue with two theaters also houses Boom Chicago for Business and their training arm, the Boom Chicago Academy.

Boom Chicago addresses Dutch, American and world social and political issues like privacy, the role of technology, Europe, the extreme right, Pim Fortuyn, 9/11, social media and the gig economy. Their unique mixing of comedy styles combined with technology has been popular with audiences and critics alike. 2019's The Future is Here... And it is Slightly Annoying uses AI to program a robot to improvise with the cast on stage. They were the creative forces behind Comedy Central News (CCN), a news show on the Dutch Comedy Central TV for two seasons.

The group is currently owned by Moskos, Rosenfeld and Saskia Maas.

History[edit]

1993: Andrew Moskos, Pep Rosenfeld and Ken Schaefle open Boom Chicago at the Iboya, Korte Leidsedwarsstraat 41, 85 seats. Saskia Maas joins the company.

1994: Moves to Studio 100 (now the Sugar Factory) on Lijnbaansgracht 238, 180 seats.

1997: Moves into the 270 seat Leidseplein Theater, the theater where Dutch legends Wim Kan, Wim Sonneveld and Toon Hermans began in the 1930s. Boom Chicago renovates the theater, adds a kitchen, bar, and rock show sound and lighting.

2000: Hires first video director, Jamie Wright, and introduces multimedia to the shows. Cameras are fitted in the theater (and the Leidseplein outside). Soon green screen studios and live internet, make Boom Chicago an early pioneer with technology in a comedy show.

2002: Comedy Swap with The Second City in Chicago. The mainstage casts of The Second City and Boom Chicago perform on each other's stages in each other's cities. This was the first (and only) time a visiting comedy group plays on Second City's mainstage. All shows sell out. Key meets Peele.

2004: Boom Chicago Video Productions launches after the worldwide success of the Florida Voting Machine Video, where an American citizen tries to vote for Kerry, but the rigged machine only allows him to vote for George Bush.

2006: Me, MySpace and iPod opens to best reviews to date. Merijn Henfling, Het Parool: "Genius... We are once again grateful that [Boom Chicago] decided to make Amsterdam their home." Peter de Bie and Francisco van Jole, TROS radio: "People are saying this is the best Boom Chicago show ever, and we would agree." Henk van Gelder, NRC Handelsblad: "Sharp and interactive. They have created an entirely new form of theater; call it digital comedy."

First internet and mobile shows Full Frontal News (Greg Shapiro and Becky Nelson) and Slacker Fantasy Football (Michael Orton-Toliver, Brian Jack, Matt Chapman). The Unlikely Fan (Brendan Hunt, Matt Chapman), a daily World Cup video series was featured on MSN.

2007: Comedy Central News, begins as a daily show on Comedy Central Netherlands and runs for 75 episodes. Highly Dubious News is nominated for a mobile content award at MIPCOM, the television conference in Cannes. The Chinese Ambassador to the Netherlands asked Boom Chicago to remove their viral video "SpongeBob SquarePants in China", which goes on to receive more than 22 million views on YouTube, making it the number one most viewed film and animation video on the video site worldwide (as of April, 2009). By 2011, the video has been viewed more than 85 million times. It is still the number one Dutch comedy video of all time.

2008: 15 year anniversary, April 24. CCN returns as a weekly show in April on Comedy Central (NL). Bye-Bye Bush celebrates the end of an era.

2009: Yankee Come Back opens the City of Amsterdam's 400 Year celebration of the Dutch settlement of New York. In the autumn, to coincide with New York's celebration the group performs Holland Globetrotters at the New Island Festival, a coproduction of de Parade, Oerol and the Netherlands Theater Institute.

2010: Longtime fan of Boom Chicago, Maurice de Hond, makes his on stage comedy debut in Political Party. With Pep Rosenfeld, Greg Shapiro and director Andrew Moskos they create a show that combines politics, political discussion and A-list politicians who also perform in comedy scenes.

2011: The Leidseplein Theater becomes the Chicago Social Club. Together with club innovator Casper Reinders (Jimmy Woo) and Pieter de Koning and Joris Bakker (Bitterzoet), the venue undergoes a thorough upgrade and increases its club programming. 9/11 Forever is the only political comedy show in the world to address the ten-year anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

2012: Pep Rosenfeld speaks at TEDx Amsterdam: "Fight, Flight or Be Funny" and hosts TEDx Binnenhof where he makes fun of Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Maxima while they are just meters away. Saskia Maas speaks at TEDx Education. With prominent roles at TED events, NEXT and Picnic, Boom Chicago has become a major player at technology, ideas and business conferences.

2013: Boom Chicago moves from their longtime home on the Leidseplein to the (nicer) Rozentheater, where they celebrate 20 years in Amsterdam with "The 7 Deadly Dutch Sins." The Chicago Social Club continues at the Leidseplein as one of Amsterdam's best club venues.

2013: Nightmare on the Rozengracht runs during October, a 30-minute walk-through haunted house and pop up bar for adults. The show "Delete Zwarte Piet Niet" predicts the uproar and race controversy which would peak this year. They are among the first to propose 'roet piet' which later would become the modern compromise.

2014: To promote What's Up With Those Beards?, Boom Chicago attempts to break the Guinness Book of World Records for most beards in one room. They only break the Dutch record.

2016: For the first ever Dutch Correspondents' Dinner, Boom Chicago's Andrew Moskos and Wilko Terwijn help write the comedy speech for and coach Prime Minister Rutte. The political year continues with Angry White Men: Trump Up the Volume capturing and skewering the US election.

2017: Becoming just Trump Up the Volume, the show becomes one of the longest running shows at Boom Chicago. Boom Chicago renovates their second theater and launches The Upstairs Theater. Sunday Night Live take residency there and marks the return of long form improv to Boom Chicago. Pep Rosenfeld, Greg Shapiro, and director Andrew Moskos present The Year in Search, a video in partnership with Google.

2018: Andrew Moskos takes over as Artistic Director. The 25th anniversary show Bango! opens in May, starring Tamar Broadbent, Karel Ebergen, Simon Lukacs, Rhys Collier, Cene Hale, Emil Struijker-Boudier, Sacha Hoedemaker and directed by Andrew Moskos. The 25th anniversary year peaks on July 14 with two shows at Carre and the release of their book, The 25 Most Important Years in Dutch History. The Boom Chicago Academy starts teaching the FA's long-form curriculum. Escape Through the Movies, Boom Chicago's latest escape room adventure, opens at the Rozentheater.

2019: The Future is Here ...And it's Slightly Annoying! continues Boom Chicago's tradition of making technologically relevant shows. Boom Chicago partners with Bud and the Rozentheater is a launch location for AB InBev's massive introduction of the iconic American brand in the Netherlands.
