Boom Chicago Comedy Festival Onsite Covid Testing

Safe, Free and Easy!

Plan ahead with or show up with no reservation to the Boom Chicago Comedy Festival. There is free GGD-accredited testing onsite for the festival from 27th July to 1st August  from 15:00 to 21:00.

(For shows 24th – 26th July, guests will be seated at distance and there are no health entrance requirements.)

It is recommended that people show up one hour before their show if they need a test on site. Then there will be plenty of time to get tested, receive the results, have a drink before the show and get seated with no rush. There is no need to book an appointment. Registration happens on-site as well.

All staff, cast, guests and performers need to be tested every day. (Or have a valid QR code on Corona Check App due to vaccination or having had corona). At-home tests are not necessary (nor accepted). Let the pros do their jobs!

We will meet you in front of our theater, explain registration, and guide you to our onsite testing location. After your (good) result comes in (15-20 minutes after being tested), you may enter the building.

The show must go on… and we are making it safer and easier!
