Boom Chicago Comedy Festival

Jordan Peele is one of America’s most exciting writer-directors-producers. Winning an Oscar for his groundbreaking sociological-horror film Get Out, he quickly moved on to films like BlacKkKlansman, Us, and the TV anthology Twilight Zone. His upcoming films Candyman (cinemas) and Wendell and Wild (Netflix) arrive this summer with incredible expectations. Get a chance to ask those burning questions! Jordan got his comedy start at Boom Chicago from 2001-2004. His first show was the critically acclaimed Europe: We’ve Created a Monster which included the famous Eurovision Song Contest character Danish Supermodel Uta. ‘Yes because…’ In 2002, he performed in Rock Stars the groundbreaking show that was also part of the Second City Stage Swap. Boom Chicago was (and remains) the only group to ever perform on Second City’s mainstage while they came to Amsterdam to perform on ours. It was there that he met Keegan Michael Key. That friendship and partnership led to the all time great sketch comedy show Key & Peele on Comedy Central from 2012 – 2015 and countless acting partnerships including in Toy Story 4, Fargo, Keanu, and the upcoming animated film Wendell and Wild. Jordan was in two Boom Chicago Edinburgh Fringe Festival shows including Here Comes the Neighborhood with Boom alums (and future Ted Lasso creators) Brendan Hunt and Joe Kelly. We are very lucky that he will take a break from shooting his new film this summer to have a Comedy Conversation at the first BCCF.
