SummaryWe are taking our favorite mix of hilarious scenes and razor sharp improvisation and bringing them to our Upstairs Theater for more intimate (but still air conditioned), comedy block party all summer long. Every seat is the best seat in the house! Throw in summer drink specials, warm weather tunes, and you’ve got a Summer Improv Party! The show includes scenes from our high tech hit The Future is Here… And it is Slightly Annoying. Can we teach a robot to be funny? Yes we can! Using artificial intelligence we taught a robot to write music and improvise with us in a scene. Come see the results and see if our actors should be worried for their jobs (Spoiler alert: Nope. The actors are hysterical and the robot is only pretty good. AI is still in its infancy!) Your suggestions are the starting point for our comedy. We turn your ideas into jokes, characters and scenes. it’s like magic and really, really funny. It’s all happening right front of your eyes. Come watch the next generation of comedy superstars before they get too big for you to afford their shows! This is the stage that launched Seth Meyers and Amber Ruffin (Late Nite with Seth Meyers), Jordan Peele (Key and Peele, Get Out), Ike Barinholtz (Blockers, Suicide Squad, The Mindy Project), Kay Cannon (Blockers, Pitch Perfect, Girlboss), and many others. Boom Chicago alumni write for Saturday Night Live, The Daily Show, How I Met your Mother, 30 Rock, Girls, Broke Girls and someday perhaps a show called Girls Who Are a Few Days Late with the Rent. Summer Improv Party stars top improvisers like Tamar Broadbent, Simon Lukacs, Lizz Kemery, Simon Feilder, Tyler Groce and musical director Sacha Hoedemaker. Watch this team, led by Artistic Director Andrew Moskos, make their mark at Boom Chicago this summer. See them before they’re on TV!
