In 2007, Eman El-Husseini came up with the idea of starting a BEST OF OPEN MIC competition, hence BOOM. The idea was to bring about an exciting and yet simple concept to Montreal’s open mic scene. A competition that would feature the best of open mic’ers of the month. And so it began, and overtime BOOM, Montreal’s BEST OF OPEN MIC comedy show, became very popular and hundreds of Comedians participated in this competition. They attended the regular open mics at the old Comedyworks in order to be able to qualify for BOOM, which took place the last Sunday of each month.

With the closure of BOOM’s host comedy club in June of 2014, so came an abrupt stop to BOOM’s production. It was not until February of 2015 where BOOM found a new home at Yuk Yuk’s Montreal (now closed) and a new co-producer, Ali Mohammadi (Chief Funny Officer of ComedyVille). The last production of BOOM was in March of 2016. The show has now been re-branded into the BOOM ProShow, a professional comedy production, scheduled on a Friday night, featuring 4 seasoned comedians and a headliner..
