Amsterdam's foremost comedy theater has moved from the Leidseplein but continues to bring delightful English-language improvisational comedy to the city. The partly scripted, partly improvised humor takes potshots at life in Amsterdam, politics, tourists, and any other available target. Dutch audiences seem to enjoy the English comedy as much as anyone and, in fact, often seem to get the point ahead of the native English-speakers in attendance. There’s an enormous bar, although the audience sits at candlelit tables during the show. Tickets are €7.50 to €35 not including dinner, which must be booked in advance. Boom Chicago has teamed up with three local restaurants to deliver Asian, Italian, or Arabic chow right to your table. The box office is open daily from 4pm until show time at 8pm.
