Introducing Bango! New Form Improv with a Beat
In 2018, Boom Chicago turns 25 years old and we are still innovating! Andrew Moskos, the director of 7 Deadly Dutch Sins, Trump up the Volume and 9/11 Forever, presents Bango!, a brand new comedy show and a brand new comedy style: New Form Improv. This new show takes fewer suggestions from the audience and moves past the familiar structure of improv games. Freed from the rules, our talented cast responds at even higher speeds with rich characters, stories and scenes for a fresh, fun and exciting comedy show.
Bango! is different each night. The show is based on true stories told by the actors, audience members and special guest stars which are never repeated. The musical energy comes from Sacha Hoedemaker who provides studio production, live music and funky drums. The cast adds lyrics to tell some stories musically.
This improv comedy show is entirely in English. The show lasts around 2 hours, including intermission. The show starts at 20:30 Wednesdays to Fridays. On Saturdays, the show starts at 20:00.
REVIEW FROM CHLOE:
“We booked the show on Saturday night because we knew our awesome Sandeman’s tour guide was hosting. We had been on his tour earlier in the week. We had our two sons with us (ages 19, 21) plus one of their friends (age 22) and they thought the show was outstanding. My husband and I did as well—which shows how the humor works for different generations. Kor was the MC—and was outstanding. We saw three additional comedians. While they were all funny, Paul from Scotland was exceptionally funny! We are all still talking about him today. Great set and worked for all cultures!
Thanks for the international entertainment and humor!”
