Did you hear the one about how three Evanstonians (and one Dutch woman) turned Chicago’s unique art form of improvisation comedy into an international success?
Andrew Moskos, cofounder of Boom Chicago, shares stories about their Amsterdam comedy institution.
Started in 1993, Boom Chicago introduced the Chicago model of sketch and Improv comedy to a mainstream European audience. In the almost 30 years since then, then have made millions of people laugh at their theater, on TV and on line including the Netherlands’ biggest viral comedy video with 100 million views. They host international events and work with some of the world's biggest companies. Andrew even coached Prime Minister Mark Rutte and helped him write his ‘most successful speech ever’ for the Dutch Correspondents Dinner.
Their theater has launched the careers of a hundred comedians including Seth Meyers, Jordan Peele, Amber Ruffin, Jason Sudeikis, Brendan Hunt and Kay Cannon.
Join us for a lively talk about comedy, business and the dream of making a living doing what you love.
