    In only 11 days The Next Web Conference 2008 will be held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. We will post short daily updates about speakers, initiatives and events here.

    Premiere: The First internetwide premiere of “Comedy With Your Pants Off” presented by Boom Chicago and Flabber.nl on April 4th onstage at The Next Web, Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam!

    Boom Chicago“Comedy With Your Pants Off” is the world’s first interactive online comedy show. It has been developed together with Dutch weblog Flabber.nl and is not just a live stream watched by people on their computers, but a improv show created for an ‘at home’ (and ‘at work’ and ‘in transit’) audience. The actor’s will be taking suggestions live via chat from viewers around the world and performing live, for the first time, from The Next Web Conference in Amsterdam. This is the first comedy show you can participate with and watch, with your pants off. (The actors will probably have pants on.)
